Petrobras started production from the Lula Norte area of its Lula field in the BM-S‑11 block in the Santos Basin. Oil is flowing through the P-67 FPSO, the ninth production unit installed in the block, with processing capacity of up to 150,000 B/D of oil and 6 million cm/D of gas. Petrobras said the Lula field is now the largest producer in Brazil and should eventually deliver 1 million B/D this year. Partners in the BM-S‑11 concession are Shell and Petrogal.
