The FPSO Cidade de São Paulo MV23 is deployed in the Sapinhoá (formerly Guara) field, BM-S-9 Block in the giant "pre-salt" region of the Santos Basin.

The VLCC Radiant Jewel which was converted into the FPSO is capable of processing 120,000 barrels of oil or 150,000 barrels of total fluids per day.
