TotalEnergies has approved the final investment decision of the Lapa South-West oil development located in the Santos Basin, 300 km off the coast of Brazil.
TotalEnergies operates the project with a 45 per cent interest, in partnership with Shell (30 per cent) and Repsol Sinopec (25 per cent). Lapa South-West will be developed through three wells, connected to the existing Lapa FPSO located 12 km away and currently producing the North-East part of the Lapa field since 2016.
At production start-up, expected in 2025, Lapa South-West will increase production from the Lapa field by 25,000 barrels of oil per day, bringing the overall production to 60,000 barrels of oil per day.
This development represents an investment of approximately $1 billion.
“This latest development is an important milestone for TotalEnergies in Brazil that will increase its operated production in the pre-salt Santos Basin, a key growth area for the Company”, said David Mendelson, Senior Vice President, Americas at TotalEnergies Exploration & Production., adding that “With its efficient engineering approach and synergies with existing facilities, this project illustrates TotalEnergies’ strategy of focusing on low cost, low emissions assets.”
