The Federal Government was entitled to 2.9 million barrels of oil and 32.2 million cubic meters of natural gas from the total produced in 2020 in contracts under the regime of sharing in the Pre-salt Polygon. The information is part of the Monthly Bulletin of Production Sharing Contracts prepared by Pré-Sal Petróleo (PPSA), manager of the contracts on behalf of the Union. Currently, of the 17 contracts that operate on a sharing basis, three are in production - Area of Development of Mero (Libra), Surroundings of Sapinhoá and Tartaruga Verde Sudoeste, operating four FPSOS and 18 wells. In 2020, the total production of these contracts totaled 16.3 million barrels of oil and 89.7 million cubic meters of natural gas available for sale.

 

In oil production, the result in 2020 highlights the Mero Development Area as the main producer in the sharing regime, accounting for 57% of the accumulated total (9.3 million barrels), followed by the Tartaruga Verde Sudoeste fields (25% , 4.1 million barrels) and the Surroundings of Sapinhoá (18%, 2.9 million barrels). In the production of natural gas available for sale, the Entorno de Sapinhoá fields were the main producers, accounting for about 65% of the total accumulated with 58.7 million cubic meters. The natural gas produced in Mero, with a high CO2 content, is being injected into the reservoir for an effective increase in oil production. So far there is no forecast for its commercialization.

 

In the parcels of the Union, Entorno de Sapinhoá recorded the largest surplus in accumulated oil, about 55% of the total (1.58 million barrels), and also the largest surplus in available natural gas accumulated to be marketed by the Union, around 99 , 6% of the total (32.1 million cubic meters).

 

Since the beginning of the production of the sharing regime, in November 2017, until December 2020, the Union has accumulated a production of 7.7 million barrels of oil and 52.4 million cubic meters of natural gas.

 

December 2020 results: 

Oil - In December 2020, the average of the total production in sharing regime was 47 thousand barrels of oil per day (bpd) in the three contracts, being 29 thousand bpd in the Mero Development Area, 7 thousand bpd in Surroundings Sapinhoá and 10,000 bpd in Tartaruga Verde Sudoeste. The daily average of the total Union oil surplus in the three sharing contracts was 8.6 thousand bpd, of which 4.3 thousand bpd in the Mero Development Area, 4.2 thousand bpd in Entorno de Sapinhoá and 39.2 bpd in Tartaruga Verde Sudoeste.

 

Natural Gas - In December, the average daily production of natural gas was 238 thousand m³ in the two contracts with commercial use of natural gas, with 160 thousand m³ / day at the CPP of the Surrounding of Sapinhoá and 78 thousand m³ / day at the CPP of Southwest Green Turtle. The daily average of the Union's natural gas share was 92,000 m³.
