The anticipated production capacity of the unit is 225 000 bpd and 12 million m3 of gas/d.
The FPSO Almirante Tamandaré will be the sixth production system of the Búzios field, with start-up scheduled for 2H24, and the largest oil production unit operating on the Brazilian coast.
Petrobras said that currently "only SBM has the capacity to meet the technical, operational and availability requirements of the company".
The other two units to be installed in the Búzios field, FPSOs P-78 and P-79, will be contracted by bidding, in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) modality. The contracting process is already underway and the winning companies of the public pre-qualification carried out by Petrobras will participate in it. The platforms will have the capacity to process 180 000 bpd and 7.2 million m3 of gas daily, and are expected to start operating in 2025.
