RIO DE JANEIRO – Petrobras has declared commercial the Aruanã and Oliva areas in concession BM-C-36, block C-M-401, in the post-salt of Campos basin.

In the proposal sent to the National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP), Petrobras suggests that the Aruanã accumulation be named Tartaruga Verde field and the Oliva accumulation Tartaruga Mestiça.

Aruanã is estimated to hold 230 MMboe and Oliva to hold 121 MMboe.
