The consortium will give continuity to the investments provided in the Discovery Evaluation Plan, presented to the National Petroleum Agency in 2007, to confirm the dimensions and characteristics of the reserve. Carioca Nordeste lies in a water depth of 7,057 feet (2,151 meters) about 171 miles (275 kilometers) off the state of Sao Paulo in the evaluation area of the Carioca well.
