Petrobras announces the discovery of new gas accumulation at Espírito Santo Basin post-salt. The discovery took place during drilling of well 3-BRSA-1259-ESS (ANP nomenclature) / 3-ESS-222 (Petrobras nomenclature), informally known as Tanganika, at a water depth of 1,043 meters, located in the Malombe Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD), 72 km off the coast of the Espírito Santo state.

The consortium operated by Petrobras (89.89%) in partnership with Repsol Sinopec (11.11%) will proceed with the operations planned, in order to better evaluate the discovery, through a formation test.
