out 27, 2020
Shell Brasil e parceiros do Consórcio assinaram compromisso para aprimoramento contínuo dos campos de Tupi e Iracema, na Bacia de Santos.
Rio de Janeiro - A Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda, subsidiária da Royal Dutch Shell plc, anunciou hoje que os parceiros do Consórcio BM-S-11 assinaram um compromisso para o aprimoramento contínuo dos campos de Tupi e Iracema, na Bacia de Santos, incluindo a elaboração de um novo Plano de Desenvolvimento de Campo (PD) para BM-S-11.
Como parte deste plano de otimização, a Petrobras Netherlands B.V. adquiriu o FPSO P-71, que está em fase de construção. Sob o acordo de compra e venda, que está sujeito a condições precedentes, a Shell receberá aproximadamente US$ 252 milhões (antes de impostos), valor que será pago em parcelas nos anos de 2020 e 2021.
Um dos projetos mais produtivos da Shell em águas profundas, o campo de Tupi tem números impressionantes: com nove FPSOs instalados entre 2010 e 2019, o campo possui atualmente capacidade instalada de mais de 1,3 milhão de barris de óleo equivalente por dia, e a produção acumulada já ultrapassou 2 bilhões de barris de óleo equivalente em setembro de 2020.
A venda do FPSO P-71 e a atualização do PD são consistentes com o objetivo da companhia de aprimorar seu portfólio e preservar caixa no atual cenário de mercado, enquanto busca oportunidades em ativos de classe mundial como Tupi. Este acordo permite que o Consórcio siga buscando oportunidades para aumentar ainda mais o fator de recuperação do campo de Tupi, com uma maior eficiência de capital.
“Nos últimos anos, a Shell vem construindo um portfólio sólido no Brasil, e nele, Tupi aparece como o maior campo em produção no país. Além dos ativos que estão em operação, a empresa vem explorando diversas oportunidades em blocos adquiridos nos leilões mais recentes da ANP. Ao mesmo tempo que nos concentramos na segurança de nossas operações, continuamos buscando oportunidades de crescimento no momento certo, seja em ativos existentes, como Tupi, seja nas próximas rodadas de leilão,” afirmou Cristiano Pinto da Costa, diretor de Ativos do Pré-Sal da Shell Brasil.

Shell and BM-S-11 partners agree on new Field Development Plan for Tupi and Iracema
October 27, 2020 - Shell Brasil Petroleo Ltda, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, announced today that the members of BM-S-11 consortium have reached an agreement on a plan to continue optimizing the Tupi and Iracema fields, including the design of an updated Field Development Plan for BM-S-11.
As part of this optimization plan, Petrobras Netherlands B.V. has agreed to purchase the P-71 Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit, which is currently under construction. Under the sale and purchase agreement, which is subject to certain conditions precedent, Shell’s pre-tax proceeds from the sale will be approximately $252 million and will be paid in multiple instalments throughout 2020 and 2021.
One of Shell’s most prolific deep-water assets, the Tupi field boasts impressive milestones: with nine FPSOs commissioned between 2010 and 2019, the field has a current total installed capacity of over 1.3 million boe/d and accumulated production exceeded 2 billion barrels in September 2020.
The P-71 sale and the Field Development Plan update are actions consistent with the company´s drive to optimize its portfolio and preserve cash in the current environment, while seeking growth opportunities in world class assets like Tupi. This agreement allows the partnership to continue to pursue opportunities to improve the Recovery Factor of Tupi with greater capital efficiency.
“In recent years, Shell has built a robust portfolio in Brazil, with Tupi being the largest production asset in-country. In addition to assets already in operation, the company has several opportunities in blocks acquired in recent ANP auctions. While we focus on the safe delivery of our operations, we will continue to seek growth opportunities where appropriate, either in the existing assets like Tupi or in future bid rounds,” states Cristiano Pinto da Costa, Shell Brasil General Manager for Non-Operated Pre-salt assets.
