Petrobras has started the production of oil and natural gas from the shared deposit of Atapu, through platform P-70, in the eastern portion of the Santos Basin pre-salt, near the Búzios field.

The Atapu shared deposit comprises the fields Oeste de Atapu, Atapu and a portion of the Union's noncontracted area, whose unitisation process was completed in September 2019.

Petrobras holds 89.257% of the rights to the deposit in partnership with Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda (4.258%), Total E&P do Brasil Ltda (3.832%), Petrogal Brasil S.A. (1.703%) and PPSA (0.950%).

Atapu will contribute to the growth of production in the pre-salt. The P-70 FPSO operating the well has the capacity to process up to 150 000 bpd and treat up to 6 million m3 of natural gas. The unit will operate about 200 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro state, in 2300 m of water depth, with a forecast of interconnection of up to eight producing and eight injection wells.
