Brazilian state-run oil company Petrobras has announced its Sepetiba floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit started production on Sunday.

Chartered from SBM and installed at the Mero oilfield in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin, Sepetiba has the capacity to produce 180,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) and a daily 12 million m3 of gas.

Sepetiba is the third production unit installed by Petrobras at the Mero oilfield, where it still plans to add two other units. Mero’s current output totals around 230,000 bpd, according to the Brazilian firm.
