DeGolyer & McNaughton to Audit Petrobras' New Finds

Brazil's federal energy company Petrobras has hired international auditing company DeGolyer & McNaughton to audit new discoveries in the country, Petrobras E&P director Guilherme Estrella told BNamericas.

Petrobras wants the audit performed before declaring the discoveries commercially feasible. Petrobras plans to announce commercial feasibility of at least three new offshore fields in the country by year-end, BNamericas reported in mid-October. Two are gas fields close to the existing Golfinho gas field in the Espirito Santo basin's northern region and the third is in the Campos basin's northern region, close to the existing Jubarte heavy crude field.
