Petrobras: TíNew well confirms Sergipe-Alagoas Basin potential

While drilling extension well 3-BRSA-1022-SES (3-SES-181), Petrobras found gas. The well is located in the Poço Verde Discovery Evaluation Plan area (concession BM-SEAL-4) in the ultra-deep waters of Sergipe-Alagoas Basin.

It is called Poço Verde 1, and lies 58 km off the coast of Aracaju at a depth of 2,196 meters.

The reservoirs found have good porosity characteristics, confirming project expectations.
