The FPSO is scheduled to begin oil and gas production in the last quarter of 2024, thus advancing the timeline from PE 24-28, initially planned to commence operations in 2025.

The FPSO will operate in the Jubarte field in the Campos basin’s pre-salt layer, off Espírito Santo’s coast. The unit has a production capacity of 100,000 bpd and can process 5 MMcmgd. The production projections of the Strategic Plan, which allow for a margin of variation, remain unchanged.

The FPSO Maria Quitéria is a floating production, storage, and offloading unit equipped with decarbonization technologies such as a combined cycle power generation system and FGRU (closed flare).

Petrobras chartered the unit from Yinson, which was also responsible for its construction.
