On May 3, the FPSO Cidade de Paraty started its journey to Brazil, after its hull conversion was concluded at the Keppel shipyard, in Singapore. Conversion works lasted for approximately 21 months and the ship left the shipyard in excellent conditions. The journey to Brazil will take around 40 days, and it’s in that country that topsides will be integrated. These topsides are already under construction at the BrasFels shipyard in Angra dos Reis. The FPSO should be delivered to the consortium during the first quarter of 2013.

The FPSO Cidade de Paraty will have capacity to produce 120 thousand barrels of oil per day and 5 million cubic metres of natural gas. This FPSO is included in the Lula development project and it will be allocated to the Lula NE area, where an extended well test was performed in 2011, having achieved positive results.

This landmark reaffirms the delivery track record of the consortium for the development of this complex project, which comprises a nine FPSO plan, which will all be in place by the end of 2017, increasing the oil production capacity in the Lula field to 1,270 thousand barrels per day.
