PARIS, April 27 (Reuters) - A decision on the first floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels on the giant Libra project in Brazil will be made by the summer, Total’s head of exploration and production said on Thursday.
“We are actively working actively on Libra to have the first FPSO decided before summer,” Arnaud Breuillac told an oil summit in Paris.
Total is one of the partners in Libra with Brazil’s state-controlled oil company Petróleo Brasileiro SA. The project will see the installation of four FPSOs in the field with a capacity to produce 180,000 barrels of oil a day (bpd) in 2020. (Reporting by Bate Felix, Editing by Sarah White)
