|Daily average production (boe/day) in 2023*
|Papa Terra cluster*
Papa Terra cluster
Production at the Papa Terra cluster increased 26% from November to December 2023 as a result of improved operational efficiency in the asset and the successful connection of the PPT-22 well in the first week of December. The second well intervention in the Papa Terra Field (well PPT-12) was completed ahead of schedule in the beginning of January 2024. The PPT-12 is expected to start production at the end of January, after necessary adaptations to the FPSO processing systems have been completed. These activities may result in a temporary interruption of Papa Terra Field production for up to five days. This work will also enhance the efficiency of processing fluids produced by all other wells.
Production at the Peroá cluster decreased 2% from November to December 2023 as a result of the sale of the natural gas volume outlined in the take-or-pay contract, in addition to the surplus traded, aligned with the market demand in the December.
Production at Illinois Basin decreased 17% from November to December 2023. The production decrease was a result of some existing wells being shut-in during the completion of newly drilled wells. In October 2023, Maha commenced a program consisting of three production wells and production battery installation. All three wells have been drilled and two of the wells have been completed. The last well is expected to be completed and start producing in January. Maha’s current production from the Illinois Basin as per 7 January 2024 amounts to 264 boepd.
Maha has an indirect working interest of 15% in the Peroá cluster and 9.375% in the Papa Terra cluster, with 3R Petroleum Offshore S.A. being the operator. Maha is the operator holding 97% working interest in the Illinois Basin.
