Petrobras has announced that it has completed drilling extension well 3-BRSA-1253D-ESS / 3-ESS-219D (Petrobras nomenclature), informally known as Pudim, at a water depth of 1886 m, in the Espírito Santo Basin post-salt.

The completion of this well, which had been announced to the market on October 7, confirmed the presence of excellent quality oil through log data analysis, fluid samples and cable test conducted in reservoirs located at a depth of some 4300 m. Drilling ended at a depth of 4670 m.

Then, a cased-hole drill-stem test was conducted at the 4305 to 4383 m interval that confirmed the presence of light oil of approximately 35° API.

The well is located in the Brigadeiro Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD) area, 121 km from the city of Vitória, in Espírito Santo state.

Petrobras is the operator (65%) of the consortium responsible for the exploration of the Brigadeiro Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD), in partnership with PTTEP Brasil Investimentos em Exploração e Produção de Petróleo e Gás Ltda (20%) and Inpex Petróleo Santos Ltda (15%).
