The FPSO will have an estimated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission intensity within the range of 8-12 kgCO2e/boe1 for the Company’s new build FPSOs, benefiting from proprietary emission reduction technologies.

The FPSO will be deployed at the Mero unitized field located in the Santos Basin approximately 160 kilometers offshore Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, under a 22.5-year lease and operate contract with Petróleo Brasileiro S.A.
