RIO DE JANEIRO—The Parque das Conchas (BC-10) oil area, located in the deepwater Campos Basin offshore Brazil, helped Anglo-Dutch major Royal Dutch Shell become a leading operator in Brazil.

Currently, Shell has 29 E&P contracts in Brazil. The company started production offshore Brazil at the Fluminense Field in 2004. However, the Parque das Conchas Field can be considered an example of how technology can lead to safe and profitable fields.

With 10 years of production, Parque das Conchas has reached a milestone as it becomes a mature asset.

Hart Energy talked to Shell Brazil BC-10 Operations Manager Mandy Lewis, whose comments have been edited for clarity and length, about the importance of the field for the company, its operational challenges and technological achievements.
