Petrobras Hits Second Oil, in Campos Basin

Brazil’s Petrobras has found oil in an exploratory well located in the Sudoeste de Tartaruga Verde block, in the Campos Basin.

The well, informally called Natator, is located 130 km from the city of Macaé in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro, in water depths of 1080 m.

The oil was discovered in carbonate reservoirs in the post-salt section.

The block, acquired in the Fifth Production Sharing Round in September 2018, is inserted in the Pre-salt Polygon under a production-sharing regime.

Petrobras is the operator of the block with 100% interest; Pre-sal Petróleo S.A. (PPSA) is manager.

This discovery marks the second for Petrobras in April. The first well is located about 200 km off the coast of the city of Santos, Sao Paulo, at a water depth of 1995 m. The discovery was made in porous reservoirs in the exploratory prospect known informally as Araucária.
