Petrobras Discovers New Oil Well in the Campos Basin

Petrobras announced that it has discovered oil in the pre-salt in the Campos Basin’s southern portion, in a wildcat well within the Alto de Cabo Frio Central block.

The well 1-BRSA-1383A-RJS (Alto de Cabo Frio Central Noroeste) is located 230 km from the city of Rio de Janeiro-RJ, at a water depth of 1,833 meters.

The consortium will continue to drill to the final planned depth to evaluate the dimensions of the new accumulation and to characterize the quality of the fluids and reservoirs found.

This discovery came as a result of a successful strategy of the consortium based on maximum use of data and on the application of new technological solutions in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Petrobras acquired the Alto de Cabo Frio Central block in October 2017, during the third bid round offered by the National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), under the Production Sharing regime, with Pré-Sal Petróleo SA (PPSA) as manager.

Petrobras has operatorship of the block with a 50% stake, in partnership with bp Energy do Brasil Ltda. which has 50%.
