Papa Terra cluster
The production at the Papa Terra cluster increased 7% from September to October 2023 due to improvements in the operation and production systems, resulting in greater production stability during October. The maintenance and integrity recovery campaign for units 3R-2 (TLWP) and 3R-3 (FPSO) is still ongoing, aiming for progressive reduction of the risks of unscheduled interruption of the units and greater operational efficiency of the assets.
The production at the Peroá cluster decreased 2% from September to October 2023 as a result from lower demand in the Brazilian gas market during October.
The production at Illinois Basin in October was in line with the September production. Maha commenced a program consisting of three production wells and production battery installation. To date, two wells have been drilled and the third is currently drilling. After completion, the wells are expected to increase Maha’s current production from the Illinois Basin with production ramp up starting at the end of the year.
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. Maha is also the operator of Block 70 in Oman with 65% working interest, where production testing commenced in March 2023.
