Petrobras begins well testing in Albacora field

Petrobras has started extended well tests in the discovery assessment plan (DAP) of Forno, in the Albacora field, located in the Campos Basin pre-salt.

The objective of the EWT is to evaluate the reservoir production and the characteristics of its oil. The technical information collected during the testing phase will subsidise the complementary development of the field, which is part of the Albacora revitalisation project, and Forno is included.

The Albacora field, in the Campos Basin, 184 km from Macaé, started its production in the post-salt reservoirs in 1987, with the FPSO PP Morais. Based on oil evidence in the pre-salt layer concession, Petrobras started the DAP in the Forno area, where drilling and seismic activities have already been carried out.

The EWT is a new DAP phase, which provides the interconnection between the well and the FPSO P-31, anchored in a water depth of approximately 325 m.

Petrobras is the operator (100%) of the Albacora field and will continue the DAP in this area.
