Located 78 miles (125 kilometers) offshore Brazil in the hydrocarbon-rich Campos Basin, the Roncador oil and gas field spans 27,429 acres (111 square kilometers) and boasts water depths ranging from 4,921 to 6,234 feet (1,500 to 1,900 meters).

Wholly owned and operated by state-run Petrobras, Roncador was discovered by the 1-RJS-436A exploration well in October 1996. A massive find in the Upper Cretaceous formation, the proven reserves on Roncador equal 3.0 Bboe, and total recoveries on the field are estimated at 3.7 Bboe.

Field Development

Due both to its size and the areas' differing densities, the Roncador field was divided into four sections, including Module 1 with 28 to 31 degree API, Module 2 with 18 degree API, Module 3 with 22 degree API, and Module 4 with 18 degree API. Field development on Roncador was divided into multiple phases.

Module 1, Early Production Phase

Initially, the field was produced through an early production system placed on the field to create revenue to help defer the massive costs of developing the field. Early production was reached on the Roncador field on Jan. 23, 1999, when the Seillean FPSO was connected to the discovery well. Setting a world record for depth of a completion at 6,079 feet (1,853 meters), the initial field development only exported oil, with produced gas being flared.

The success of this early production system ensured a long life for the Seillean FPSO, and in March 2001, the vessel was moved to the 9-Ro-20-RJS development well, where it remained producing 15,000 bopd until May 2002.

FMC Technologies supplied the two subsea trees required for this phase of development.

Module 1, Phase 1

The first full phase of Roncador development consisted of subsea wells tied to the massive semisubmersible production facility P-36 and then linked to the FSO P-47. Pulling petroleum from Module 1 of the field, this phase of development included 28 subsea wells, of which 21 were producers and 7 were water injectors, tied to a subsea manifold supplied by FMC Technologies.

Located in waters measuring 4,396 feet (1,340 meters), P-36 was a Friede & Goldman "Trendsetter" floating production, drilling and accommodation facility. Coming on-stream in record time, P-36 started production in May 2000 and quickly reached a rate of 80,000 bopd.

On March 15, 2001, two explosions occurred in one of the support columns aboard the P-36 facility. With a staff of 175 people, 10 personnel and one fire fighter lost their lives in the accident. The semisubmersible platform sank four days later and could not be retrieved due to the water depth of the field.

Module 1A, Phase 1

After the P-36 sunk on Module 1 of the Roncador field, Petrobras set out to get the field producing as quickly as possible. Now referred to as Module 1A, the first development solution for this section of the field was a temporary one.

Field development included the hook-up of eight production wells and three injection wells to an FPSO moored in 4,232 feet (1,290 meters) of water. Chartered from SBM, the FPSO Brazil was converted and on the field in a matter of 15 months. Designed with the capacity to produce 90,000 bopd and 106 MMcf/d (3 MMcm/d) of natural gas, the FPSO Brazil could also store 1.7 MMbo and inject 94,347 bwpd (15,000 cm/d).

Because of this innovative field development program, production was quickly restarted on Roncador on Dec. 8, 2002.Oil from the FPSO was offloaded to tankers. Produced gas was first transferred to the Namorado 1 Platform (PNA-1) and then, in 2005, transferred to the Garoupa Platform (PGP-1). The FPSO Brazil was in operation in this phase of development for five and a half years until the next, permanent development commenced operations.

Module 1A, Phase 2

Designed as the permanent field development solution for Module 1A on Roncador, the second phase of development included the fabrication and installation of the P-52 semisubmersible production platform tied to a subsea development.

Field development includes 18 subsea production wells and 11 subsea water injection wells tied-back to the semisub through 45 risers and 23 umbilicals. Subsea oil wells are directly connected to the platform, while the gas wells are connected to one of three subsea manifolds, and then to the P-52.

In a $500 million contract, Technip and Subsea 7 were awarded the engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract for the subsea system in this phase of development. The scope of work included 137 miles (221 kilometers) of flexible risers and flowlines, 101 miles (163 kilometers) of umbilicals and 52 miles (83 kilometers) of jumpers for the tie-back. MCS provided subsea FEED on this phase of development; while FMC Technologies supplied the subsea manifolds and production controls.

Situated 78 miles (125 kilometers) from shore in 5,906 feet (1,800 meters) of water, the P-52 is one of the largest of its kind, measuring 410 feet (125 meters) long, 361 feet (110 meters) wide and 492 feet (150 meters) high and boasting a displacement of more than 80,000 tons (72,575 tonnes). With a water injection capacity of 300,000 bwpd, the semisub has a production capacity of 180,000 bopd and compression capacity of 265 MMcf/d (7.5 MMcm/d) of natural gas.

In a December 2003 award, a consortium of Technip and Keppel FELS was chosen to handle the engineering and construction of the P-52. In a 2004 award, GE Energy was chosen to supply the two compression modules, each with three compression trains. The P-52 was built for a total cost of $1 billion.

Processed oil is transported from the P-52 to the Autonomous Re-Pumping Platform (PRA-1), a fixed platform located in shallower waters, and then to the FSO Cidade de Macae. Processed gas is exported through the Garoupa Platform (PGP-1).

Expected to operate through the life of the field, the P-52 commenced production in November 2007. Initially starting at 20,000 bopd, this phase of development peaked at 180,000 bopd in the latter part of 2008. Reached at the close of 2008, the peak gas flow from this phase is 113 MMcf/d (3.2 MMcm/d).

Module 2

The first full phase of development on Module 2 of the Roncador field includes subsea wells tied-back to an FPSO.

The subsea development consists of 17 long horizontal wells, of which 11 are production wells and six are water injection wells. In 2007, Technip was awarded the subsea contract for this phase of development. To be installed in 5,709 feet (1,740 meters) of water, the subsea development also includes 11 production flowlines, 11 gas lift flowlines, six water injection flowlines, 11 production risers, 11 gas lift risers and six water injection risers.

Weighing in at 73,000 tons (66,224 tonnes), the P-54 FPSO is one of the largest in the world, spanning 1,106 feet (337 meters) in length. Moored in 4,593 feet (1,400 meters) of water by a 20-line spread mooring system, the vessel boasts daily processing capacities of 180,000 bopd and 212 MMcf/d (6 MMcm/d) of natural gas, as well as water injection rates of 245,302 bwpd (39,000 cm/d). In fact, P-54 is also capable of generating 92 MW of electricity, enough to serve a city of 290,000 people, as well as storing 2 MMbo.

In a $628 million contract, Jurong Shipyard, a subsidiary of SembCorp Marine, won the conversion work on the FPSO. In a $25 million subcontract, Aker Solutions supplied the processing equipment for the vessel. Converted from the VLCC Barao De Maua 280,000 dwt very large crude carrier, the FPSO was completed in 41 months and has a field life of 25 years.

Production commenced from the P-54 FPSO on Dec. 11, 2007. Produced oil is exported via tanker, while produced gas is sent through subsea pipe to the PGP-1 platform. With peak production (180,00 bopd and 64 MMcf/d [1.8 MMcm/d]) expected for the second half of 2008, this phase of development boosts production from Roncador to 460,000 bopd.

Module 3

Field development plans for Roncador's Module 3 include a subsea development tied to a semisubmersible platform.

The subsea development will consist of subsea trees for 11 add-on wells, as well as seven water-injection wells, in this section of the field. In a $67 million construction and installation contract, FMC Technologies was chosen to provide the 11 subsea trees, 11 PLETs, 11 rigid jumpers and associated installation tools. In another contract awarded in February 2009, FMC was chosen to engineer and fabricate four subsea manifolds and controls for this phase of development. For a consideration of $75 million, the contract includes two, six-slot manifolds to distribute gas lift injection to 12 wells, as well as to manifolds for water injection.

Situated in waters measuring 5,889 feet (1,795 meters), the P-55 platform will have a daily production capacity of 180,000 bopd and gas compression capacity of 212 MMcf/d (6 MMcm/d). In December 2007, Atlantico Sul Shipyard won the contract for the 22,000-ton (19,958-tonne) hull of the platform; and in December 2008, the Top-55 consortium won the $857 million contract for the integration of the hull to the processing modules. In a $100 million contract awarded in January 2009, Dresser Rand was chosen to supply the power generation packages and services for P-55. In May 2009, Aker Solutions was awarded two contracts to supply the offshore mooring system and riser pull-in system for the semisubmersible.

Coming in at a total cost of $1.65 million, the P-55 semisub platform is expected to commence production in 2011.

Module 4

After studying field development options, it was decided to clone the P-54 FPSO for Module 4 of Roncador. To be moored in 5,069 feet (1,545 meters) of water, the P-62 FPSO will have the capacity to produce 180,000 bopd, compress 212 MMcf/d (6 MMcm/d) of natural gas and store 1.8 MMbo.

Campos Basin Production Hubs

With a number of productive fields in the Campos Basin, Petrobras developed production facilities in the area that serve various fields.

Located in the Campos Basin's shallower waters at a depth of 348 feet (106 meters), the Autonomous Re-Pumping Platform, PRA-1, is capable of receiving and transferring oil at a rate of 818,000 bopd.

In a July LOI, MODEC was chosen to engineer, procure, fabricate, install, commission and operate the PRA-1 FSO; and in a $145 million contract, Acergy was tapped to provide the EPCI work for the tie-in of oil export pipelines from the various fields transporting oil to the facility.

Installed in January 2007, the PRA-1 FSO began operations on Sept. 22, 2008. Working with a number of different fields in the area, the PRA-1 facility currently receives and transfers oil from the P-52 platform -- and will receive oil from the P-55 platform once it starts operations.

Another hub facility for the area, the Cidade de Macae FSO receives oil from P-54 -- and will receive production from P-62. With a storage capacity of 2.15 MMbo, the FSO is owned and operated by MODEC, and leased to Petrobras in a 20-year agreement.

Equipped with two independent offloading systems, the FSO achieved first oil on Nov. 26, 2007. Platforms from the Marlim Leste and Marlim Sul fields are also offloading oil to the facility.

Production

Through phased field development, production on this field has been able to make step-by-step moves toward being one of the most productive fields in the world. Currently producing 460,000 bopd, Petrobras expects peak production to reach 473,000 bopd in 2015.
