Extension well 3-BRSA-1253D-ESS (ANP nomenclature) / 3-ESS-219D (Petrobras nomenclature), known as Pudim was drilled at a water depth of 1,886 meters to confirm the discovery.
The well is located in the Brigadeiro Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD) area, 121 km off the coast of Vitória (Espírito Santo).
Log data analysis, fluid samples, and cable tests from reservoirs some 3,550 meters deep have confirmed the presence of good quality oil.
