Birthday for Cidade de Paraty! 5 years of safe operations

This summer FPSO Cidade de Paraty celebrated five years of safe and efficient offshore operations having achieved first oil in June 2013.

August 7, 2018

Since coming on stream FPSO Cidade de Paraty has produced its fair share of barrels of oil equivalent from the Lula Nordeste field, offshore Brazil. Most impressive is the achievement of 756 consequent days with no recordable incidents. With safety as our number one priority we are proud of this result. One of seven FPSOs in our Brazilian fleet, Paraty continues to add to the country’s production output and our Operations team continues to add to SBM’s over 300 cumulative years of operating experience.


FPSO Cidade de Paraty was the first of a series of four pre-salt FPSOs for our client Petrobras. The FPSO is SBM Offshore’s ‘Generation 3’ design and has topside facilities of around 14,000 tons to process 120,000 bpd of oil, associated gas treatment for 5,000,000 Sm3/d with compression and carbon dioxide removal and a water injection facility for 150,000 bpd. It is moored at 2,100 metres water depth.
