Barcelona.- PDVSA Petrocedeño begin in April a group of works to extend the operational infrastructure in the Main Station, located in San Diego Cabrutica, José Gregorio Monagas municipality, south of the state of Anzoátegui, which results in new facilities to optimize and increase drilling for oil in that locality.
To achieve this goal, the Executive Director of Production Orinoco Oil Belt (FPO), Pedro Leon, signed an agreement with Johnny Chirinos, vice president of Y & V of Venezuela. The Y&V is a company that qualified for the Project for the Adaptation of the Main Station (known as MSUP Project). It includes the construction of a third train of processes, a new water treatment plant that will have a capacity of 200 thousand barrels per day (MBD), a control room technology, a power turbine, and a tank for diluting, in addition to the existing one.
Pedro León said that these facilities will allow increasing the level of production of PDVSA Petrocedeño at maximum capacity of 200 MBD and added that the project MSUP is framed in the development plans of the Oil Belt. He said "The project will aim to optimize the management water associated with oil wells, whose levels have been increasing, and the current structure by design does not allow to handle larger volumes, so this new infrastructure will contribute to increased oil production.”
PDVSA Socialista promotes strategies to raise levels of extraction of heavy and extra heavy crude in the FPO. In line with the policies established in the Increase Special Production Plan defined by the Bolivarian Government, which is aimed at strengthening the full oil sovereignty, because Venezuela confirms its position in the first position worldwide as the country with largest oil reserves certified by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
