Manati was discovered in 2000 and its production started in 2007. It became one of the largest non-associated natural gas fields in production in Brazil and is responsible for approximately 20% of the Northeast’s energy needs.
Located in the Camamu Basin, off the coast of Bahia, the Manati Field is a milestone in our history, as it was discovered by the first well ever drilled by a consortium we participated in. This concession is part of Block BCAM-40, in which we hold a 45% interest—and in whose development we have invested over US$400 million.
Production and commercialization of gas from Manati
Manati’s wells are interconnected by submarine lines to the PMNT-1 platform, a fixed production unit installed in a water depth of 35 meters, 10 km off the coast. The gas is transported from the platform through a gas pipe measuring 61 cm in diameter and 36 km in length until it reaches the Compressor Station (SCOMP), where the gas is compressed and travels another 89 km to the processing plant (EVF). After processing, the product is sold to Petrobras to feed its facilities (refinery, thermal power plant, and nitrogen fertilizer plant) or resold to Bahiagás. Apart from gas, the Manati Field also produces condensate, which accounts for approximately 5% of our revenue.
