Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petrobras has been engaged for months in trying to solve a technical glitch that completely halted production at the Papa Terra field.

Output in the Campos basin development offshore Brazil was interrupted in January this year and has yet to resume.

Papa Terra features the P-61 dry-tree tension-leg wellhead platform linked to the P-63 floating production, storage and offloading vessel in water depths of approximately 1190 metres.
