Petrobras Discovers Hydrocarbons in Espirito Santo Basin
Petrobras found a hydrocarbon accumulation in the Cretaceous reservoirs of the Espirito Santo Basin offshore Brazil.
Well 1-BRSA-926D-ESS, informally known as Brigadeiro, found hydrocarbons in reservoirs located at a depth of about 13,780 feet (4,200 meters), with vertical porous thickness of nearly 410 feet (125 meters). Confirmation of the discovery came from wireline logging and fluid sampling.
Brigadeiro is located in the BM-ES-23 concession area, Block ES-M-525, about 71 miles (115 kilometers) off the coast of Espirito Santo in a water depth of 6,234 feet (1,900 meters). Petrobras operates the block with a 65% interest; Shell holds 20%; and Inpex Petroleo Santos holds 15%.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
