Petróleo Brasileiro SA - Petrobras announces that started on 29/05 production of FPSO Capixaba in the Cachalote field. The FPSO will also be connected to the Whale field, both located in the region "Whale Park", in the south coast of Espírito Santo, Campos Basin.

The FPSO Capixaba is chartered to Petrobras by SBM, and previously operated in the Golfinho field. To seize the opportunity of production anticipation of Cachalote and Baleia Franca fields, an adaptation was performed on the platform's process plant, to enable installation in Whale Park.

The first well is to produce the 7-CHT-5HA-ESS, with initial flow estimated at 22,000 barrels per day. By the end of the year, it is expected that the platform is connected to a total of nine wells. There will be three production wells and two guns in Cachalote, and three producing wells - two of the pre-salt layer - and a gun in Whale. Peak production is scheduled to take place in December 2010, with an expected volume of 100 thousand barrels of oil per day.
