Petrobras has confirmed a second oil find in the Fanfan area in the deepwater Sergipe-Alagoas basin offshore Brazil.
In August the company reported an initial discovery with well 9-SES-188D in the BM-SEAL-11 concession in block SEAL-M-426. It encountered 37-40º API light oil and with good permoporosity conditions in the turbidite reservoirs.
The well subsequently proved another light oil accumulation in a deeper-lying reservoir.
The location is 107 km (66 mi) offshore Aracaju, 5.7 km (3.5 mi) from the initial discovery in the block announced last August, in a water depth of 2,492 m (8,176 ft).
Petrobras operates in partnership with IBV-BRASIL.
