Brazilian oil company Petrobras has restarted production from the Manati offshore gas field in Brazil, after it closed in September due to a leak in the onshore part of the export pipeline.
Production from the field located in the Camamu basin, in the state of Bahia, resumed Sunday October 3, after the completion of the repair of the pipeline between the compressor station and the gas treatment station, Enauta, partner of Petrobras in the Manati field, mentioned.
Petrobras operates the field with a 35% stake. Enauta owns 45%, GeoPark 10% and Petro Rio 10%. The field’s average production in September was 3.1 million m3 / day.
In August 2020, Enauta announced an agreement to sell its entire stake in the Manati field to Gas Bridge SA. The transaction is expected to be finalized by December 31, 2021.
Manati was discovered in 2000 and production started in 2007. Manati’s wells are connected by subsea lines to the PMNT-1 platform, a fixed production unit installed at a water depth of 35 meters , 10 kilometers offshore.
From there, the gas passes through a 36 km pipeline to the Compression Plant (SCOMP), where it is compressed and travels a further 89 km to the Processing Plant (EVF). In addition to gas, the Manati field also produces condensate.
