Petrobras extension well confirms and boosts Espirito Santo deepwater discovery
The consortium will continue operations, drilling to the planned depth of 4,500 metres

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 metres to confirm the discovery.

The well is located in the Brigadeiro Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD) area, 121 kilometres off the coast of Vitória (Espírito Santo).

Log data analysis, fluid samples, and cable tests from reservoirs some 3,550 metres deep have confirmed the presence of good quality oil.

Petrobras is the operator (65 per cent) of the consortium exploring the Brigadeiro Discovery Evaluation Plan area, in partnership with Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda (20 per cent) and Inpex Petróleo Santos Ltda (15 per cent).

The consortium will continue operations, drilling to the planned depth of 4,500 metres.
