Petrobras confirms extent of discovery, finds Farfan area reservoir

The drilling of a third extension well in the Farfan area in the ultradeepwater Sergipe basin confirmed the extent of the 2013 light oil and gas discovery, Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) reported on Feb. 2. The presence of a shallower, 68-m reservoir holding light oil was found as well.

Well 3-SES-186 was drilled 103 km from the city of Aracaju, Brazil, and 10 km from the discovery well in 2,467 m of water. The well will be drilled to 6,060 m.

This accumulation is part of the exploratory project in the deepwater Sergipe-Alagoas basin.

Petrobras operates the consortium with 60% interest in partnership with IBV-Brazil, which holds the remaining 40%.
