Petrobras informed the National Petroleum Agency (NPA) today that it has made a discovery of good quality oil (27º API) in the Espírito Santo Basin.
The new discovery, made via the drilling of well 4-GLF-23-ESS, is located in the area of the Golfinho field, 60 kilometers away from the city of Vitória, at a depth of 1,374 meters from the waterline. The first estimates indicate a potential of 150 million barrels of recoverable oil.
The discovery, located in a concession that is wholly owned by Petrobras, opens new exploratory perspectives for the area and has the advantage of being located near infrastructure that is already installed in the Golfinho field. As a result, the volumes that were discovered will be incorporated to the Company’s reserves and may go into production in a short period of time.
