By OGJ editors

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) has hooked up the RJS-647 presalt well for a 6-month test in the Iracema area of the BM-S-11 concession in the Santos basin offshore Brazil.

The Cidada de Sao Vicente floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (FPSO) is connected to the well in 2,212 m of water where it will operate for 6 months gathering technical information to support development of a final production system expected to be in operation by the end of 2014 using the 150,000 b/d-capacity Cidade de Mangaratiba FPSO.

Test rates are expected to be about 10,000 b/d of oil, constrained by facilities.

Petrobras has 65% interest in the block. BG Group has 25%, and Petrogal Brasil SA has 10%.
