The FPSO will have a capacity to process up to 180 000 bpd. The consortium plans four new production systems to be deployed in the Mero field. Mero-2 is the second, with first oil expected in 2022.

“Shell is the largest foreign producer in Brazil, which has become a heartland for us. Mero-2 is the latest in a series of FPSOs that will come online,” said Andy Brown, Upstream Director, Royal Dutch Shell. “From production to development, appraisal and exploration, we have a full funnel of long-life, resilient growth opportunities in the country, which is home to some of the best deep-water basins in the world.”
