The previous Lula FPSO to start up, P-69, came in the Lula Extreme South area in October 2018. Petrobras, alongside partners Shell and Galp, has launched production from the seventh Lula field floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel, bringing the consortium a step closer to reaching 1 million B/D of oil from the prolific Lula hub offshore Brazil. Hydrocarbons are flowing to the P-67 FPSO as part of the Lula North deepwater project in the pre-salt Santos Basin. The vessel, which has a capacity of 150,000 B/D of oil and 6 million cu m/day of natural gas, sits in 2130 m of water on the BM-S-11 concession 260 km off Rio de Janeiro state. P-67 will be connected to nine production wells and multiple injection wells.
