Petrobras Plans Up to Five Campos Basin Shutdowns in 2013: Folha

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PBR) plans to temporarily shut four or five platforms in the Campos Basin next year for planned maintenance, Folha de S. Paulo reported on its website.

Petrobras, as the Rio de Janeiro-based producer is known, will shut the P-54 platform at the Roncador field in February and the P-40 platform at the Marlim Sul field in April as part of the maintenance program, Folha cited Solange da Silva Guedes, a production manager at Petrobras, as saying. Each shutdown will last about 15 days, Folha said.
