Marlim Sul – Contract until 2052.

ANP extends the contract with Marlim Sul until 2052. There will be another 25 years of concession for state-owned Petrobras to produce for many, many years.

Marlim South Field concession has been extended until 2052, according to information from the ANP board. The state-owned company will now be able to produce in this region until the year 2052, which is located in the Campos Basin, in deep waters. Discovered in November 1987, through well 4-RJS382, the Marlim Sul Field is located around 90 km from Cape São Tomé, on the north coast of Rio de Janeiro, in water depths of 800 to 2.500 m, occupying an area of ​​884,11km². Today, the field has eight platforms, six of which are for production – P-26, P-37, P-38, P-40, P-51 and P-56 – one for transfer, the Autonomous Rebombing Platform (PRA-1 ), and one for oil storage, the FSO Cidade de Macaé.

Why is it important?

Marlim Sul is part of the Marlim field complex that should supply oil to Comperj, in Rio de Janeiro. At the beginning of the month, Petrobras announced that it had signed a letter of intent with the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) to evaluate the completion of the refinery and a Chinese participation in the Marlim field complex project, which includes the Marlim fields, Voador, Marlim Leste and Marlim Sul, all in Campos Basin.

Contract already extended.

Campos de Marlim and Voador already had concession contracts extended until 2052, according to the ANP board. The state company will install two new FPSOs in the field, which will result in the revitalization of production in the area. With charter contracts that also have a term of 25 years, on September 10th, the proposals for the tenders that are open will be delivered.


Petrobras is going to remove eight platforms that are currently producing in the field, starting this year with FPSO P-33, which in December will complete 20 years of operation and will also install two new FPSOs in the area.

One left.

With two production platforms, the semi-submersible P-53 and the FPSO Cidade de Niterói, which is chartered with Modec, the extension of the concession contract for the Marlim Sul field is still under analysis by the ANP. With a production of 46 barrels per day of oil, the field began producing in 2000.
