Petrobras (NYSE:PBR) has started the Extended Well Test (EWT) in the northeastern area of Lula Field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt, approximately 300 kilometers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

The Lula EWT is taking place in the FPSO BW Cidade de São Vicente, anchored at a depth of 2,120 meters. Production should remain at around 14,000 barrels of oil per day.

The information obtained in the test of Lula Nordeste will aid studies for the development of the project of the second definitive production system to be installed in the Lula field, called Lula Nordeste Pilot, through FPSO Cidade de Paraty.

The EWT of Lula Nordeste is a project of the consortium formed by Petrobras (operator, with 65% interest), BG Group (25%) and Galp Energia (10%).
