Brazil's main oilworkers’ union federation FUP delayed a planned open-ended strike against state-run oil company Petrobras until Sept. 6 at the earliest, Reuters reported.
The revised plan includes a floating LNG (FLNG) plant with an annual LNG processing capacity of 7.5 million tons. That is three times the annual LNG processing capacity that was initially envisioned for the first stage of development for the project.
About 8,938 kilograms of natural gas leaked from subsea equipment in the Southern Drill Center in the Canadian Atlantic on Aug. 31. This release was shut off within 12 minutes of the initial alarm.
The option is part of an agreement on cooperation within the proposed joint development of the two oil fields that was signed in Beijing, Rosneft said in a statement.
