The FPSO Cidade de Santos MV20 is deployed in the Urugua field and gathers production from the Tambau field. Both fields are in the Santos Basin and are being developed together.

The natural gas processed in the FPSO Cidade de Santos MV20 is delivered through an 18 inch gas pipeline to the Mexilhão field 170 kilometers from Urugua.
