The FPSO will produce from the Iracema North area of the Lula field in the Petrobras-operated BM-S-11 block. Read full article

    BG Group is a 'western' company with a global reach. It is subject to UK corporate governance and is listed on the London Stock exchange.
    It is a British multinational.
    Over to you Brasileiro!

    Oh, just an aside. Unsurprisingly Argentina still owes BG Group $185 million from 2003, after breaking a contract first signed in 1990.

    Petrobras could not function without 'western' help.
    Proof in the article above.

    Over to you Brasileiro!

    Our argie “friends” should note this vessel. It's an FPSO. That's a floating production, storage and off'loading unit.
    150,000 barrels per day and a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels. Just a mid-range vessel. Every so often a tanker pulls alongside and transfers the stored oil. A VLCC can take the entire capacity as one load.

    Where's the need for argie “co-operation” on land? Still, probably won't see them. FPSO turns up in Falklands EEZ, links to drill rig and starts work. VLCC turns up every couple of days to load stored, processed oil and then departs. Followed by the LNG carrier.

    And argieland never gets to see a drip. Presumably, argieland finally realised that its bit of dirt wasn't needed. Thus the desperate attempts to find another way to steal. Here's some tips, argies. Do you think the Falklands oil fields can supply jet and marine fuels? Do you think that Royal Air Force and Royal Navy units will re-supply on the Falklands? Could those Typhoons be able to sortie virtually continuously? Could the Royal Navy only need the Royal Fleet Auxiliary for munitions? Like Malta, could the Falkland Islands be honoured for its role in resisting brigands and state-sponsored terrorists?
