Brazil’s Petrobras has started production from the FPSO Cidade de Maricá, located in the Lula field, in the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil.
The Cidade de Maricá is a floating, production, storage and offloading unit that produces, stores and transfers oil. The vessel is located at approximately 270 kilometers from the coast, at a water depth of 2,120 meters.
According to Petrobras, with a daily production capacity of up to 150,000 barrels of oil and 6 million cubic meters of gas, this is the seventh major definitive production system in the pre-salt layer of the Santos Basin.
With this additional unit, the pre-salt layer of the Santos and Campos basins already accounts for 35% of Brazil’s oil production.

The Oil & Gas Operators in Oman have identified a major need to create a Joint O&G Supplier Base of Oman that would form the sourcing basis of their Procurement System. The Joint Registration System is a National initiative that will encourage credible suppliers – national and international, to register in the common pool. They will benefit from a ‘Single Window Registration System’ in order to tap into independent Operator opportunities and that would in turn give the Operators a direct connectivity into a ‘cleansed’ base of Suppliers in order to ‘seek and identify’ suppliers for their varying needs.
Vantrunk are delighted to have succssfully completed the registration process and look forward to building on our already rich supply history to Oman.
