- Operator: Petrobras
- Country: Brazil
- Location: Campos Basin, offshore Brazil
- Production start:
- Type: Oil / Gas
- Estimated Reserves:
- Production Volume:
- A large deep water field in the Campos Basin, the first giant deepwater field in Brazil
- The Albacora field comprises 65 wells, two production units (semisubmersible P-25 and P-31 FPSO) and seven diverless manifolds (six for oil production and one for water injection).
- The production has reached 150,000 bopd and 90 mmcf/d of natural gas.
- The semisubmersible platform P-25 has a process plant with the capacity of 100,000 bopd and 115 mmcf/d of natural gas.
- There are 14 production wells connected directly to the platform (satellite wells) and 16 wells connected to two diverless production manifolds by a vertical flowline connection system.
- These FMC Technologies manifolds, installed in December 1995 and April 1996, were the world’s deepest subsea production manifolds and multiplex control pods at the time.
- The FPSO P-31 process plant capacity is 200,000 bopd and 130 mmcf/d of gas.
- The plant processes the oil produced in P-25 platform and the oil production of 28 production wells connected to four FMC Technologies production diverless manifolds.
- FMC Technologies:
- Design and construction of permanent internal mooring system for FPSO
- Subsea trees, production manifolds, control modules & vertical connection modules
- 1984 - The Albacora field was discovered
- 2007 - Temporary stoppage due to riser problems
