Prelude Floating LNG Terminal


Probably the most exciting project in the world of Oil & Gas. The platform will be the largest ship ever built

Summary Information

  • The Espírito Santo Basin's main characteristic is diversity.
  • The occurrence of various types of hydrocarbons onshore, from gas to extra-heavy oil, enables us to anticipate the use of technologies, turning the region into a field-scale laboratory. Initial production dates back to the late 1960s, and important discoveries have been made there since the late 1990s, such as Fazenda Alegre, Inhambu, Cancã, and Jacutinga.
  • Offshore, and with great potential for light oil and gas production, are the Camarupim, Canapu and Peroá fields, the gas production of which is important to supply the domestic market. The first oil production in shallow waters took place in 1978, with the Cação field, and the first deepwater discovery was the Golfinho field, made in 2002, with light oil and associated gas.
