Equinor's Peregrino Phase 2 Topside Heads to Brazil
The topsides for Equinor's Peregrino C platform is on its way to Brazil, having set sail from Ingleside, Texas, to the Campos Basin for installation.
Operated by Equinor, Peregrino is a heavy oil field located approximately 85 off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The field is currently developed with two wellhead platforms and an FPSO. A system of pipelines, risers, and cables connect the FPSO to the wellhead platforms.
Equinor said the platform will be installed in December. Phase 2 involves the southwest area of the field, which is currently inaccessible to the existing A and B platforms. The development plan involves increasing the number of production wells in the new area by drilling 15 oil producers and 6 water injectors. It is expected to add 273 million bbls to the lifetime on the field after it comes on stream in late 2020.

The Australian company upped its forecast of initial oil production out of the field from 50,000 B/D to somewhere between 75,000 and 100,000 B/D. It expects to spend between $1.9 billion and $2.2 billion on the field's development.

Offshore OFS Market Poised for Massive Boost in Southeast Asia
A fresh wave of offshore project sanctions across Southeast Asia could boost greenfield investments in the oilfield service space by almost 70% in 2020. The growth will be driven by a handful of new megaprojects across Malaysia, Myanmar, and Vietnam, according to recent project commitments.
