Petrobras has acquired a 50% interest in Block 4, located off the coast of Benin, from Compagnie Beninoise des Hydrocarbures, a subsidiary of Lusitania Petroleum. The block covers an area of about 7.4 thousand square kilometers, in water depths ranging from 656 to 9,843 feet (200 to 3,000 meters), and is located about 37 miles (60 kilometers) from the coast.
