Petrobras makes Santos Basin discovery

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


Petrobras has identified the presence of oil in the pioneer well of the Uirapuru block, located in the Santos Basin pre-salt offshore Brazil.

The pioneer well is located about 200 km off the coast of the city of Santos (SP), at a water depth of 1995 m, with the discovery of oil in porous reservoirs in the exploratory prospect known informally as Araucária. The well data will be analysed to better target the exploratory activities in the area and assess the potential of the discovery.

The Uirapuru block, acquired in the 4th Production Sharing Round in June 2018, is inserted in the so-called Pre-salt Polygon, under a production sharing regime, having Pré-sal Petróleo S.A. (PPSA) as manager. Petrobras is the operator of the block and holds a 30% stake, in partnership with ExxonMobil (28%), Equinor (28%) and Petrogal (14%).
