First oil from the pre-salt cluster

Operations got underway in the Santos Basin pre-salt area on May 1, 2009, by means of an Extended Well Test (EWT) performed by FPSO BW Cidade de São Vicente in the Tupi area (now called the Lula Field).

This date is considered a milestone not only for the company, but also for the Country as a whole.

A year later, on October 28, 2010, the Definitive Production System went on stream at the Lula Field by means of FPSO Cidade de Angra dos Reis, which has been deployed at about 280 km from the coast and in waters with a depth of 2200 meters.
