FPSO Libra arrives offshore Brazil
The Panama-flagged FPSO Libra has just arrived in Brazilian waters becoming the first floating unit that will work in the giant Libra deposit offshore Brazil.

Under a 12-year charter, FPSO Libra will be the first to produce oil in the giant Libra Block in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil. The unit to produce 50,000 barrels of crude and 4m cu m of gas.
