Terça Técnica: “FPSO: The Current Truth for oil production in Brazil”

Prezados membros da SPE e colegas da indústria de E&P,

A SPE Seção Brasil, realizará em 07/05, às 18:30h, no espaço Alumni COPPEAD mais uma edição da TERÇA TÉCNICA, que é um programa de palestras mensais com o objetivo de disseminar conhecimento e permitir a troca de experiências entre colegas de operadoras, academia e fornecedores de bens e serviços.

Nesta TERÇA TÉCNICA abordaremos o tema: “FPSO: The Current Truth for oil production in Brazil” com o sr. Rafael de Oliveira Santos, da TKOCYAN.





The actual future of Brazil’s oil production is well defined, the Pre-salt. Nevertheless, what still under definition is the best strategy to turn this operation competitive enough to achieve  significant share on the global oil market. A definite solution is something far from the current present, once the challenges are constant and the experience exploring this fields is still under development. However, if we have some kind of certainty today it is related to the utilization of Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading platforms as the alternative for producing in this areas.

The idea of the lecture is to introduce basic concepts of this type of platform design, its advantages to be considered as the best alternative so far for producing in the pre-salt as well as its challenges and the impacts of this field’s fluid characteristics on the FPSO topside design. In addition it will be presented a brieth overview of the current FPSO market and its expectations in the future including possibilities to improve and even overcome this technology.
