Brazil's state-controlled oil and gas giant Petrobras received a new platform for pre-salt oil exploration, official news agency Agencia Brasil reported on Thursday.

The P-67 platform, built by China's Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC), an engineering unit of China National Offshore Oil Corporation(CNOOC), was being transported from COOEC's shipyard in the eastern city of Qingdao since May, the report said.

The new platform will be used in the Lula Field, located in the pre-salt area of the Santos Basin, off Brazil's southeastern coast.

The platform arrived on Wednesday and is currently stationed at Rio de Janeiro state's Guanabara Bay. It will be moved to the basin area after customs procedures are finished.

According to Petrobras, the platform, with the storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels of oil, is expected to produce 150,000 barrels of oil and compress up to 6 million cubic meters of gas every day.
