Petrobras confirms potential of Muriu area

Petrobras has confirmed the extent of the light oil and natural gas discovery in the Muriú area announced in a press release of December, 2012.
The drilling results are for extension well 3-SES-175D (3-BRSA-1180-D-SES), known as Muriú 1, located in the BM-SEAL-10 concession area (blocks SEAL-M-347 and SEAL-M-424) in the ultra deep waters of the Sergipe Basin.
The well is located 83 kilometers from the city of Aracaju, 4.4 kilometers from the discovery well and at a water depth of 2,432 meters, and confirms the existence of a 24-meter thick reservoir with good permo-porosity characteristics.
The well reached a final depth of 5,627 meters. A formation test is to be conducted to verify reservoir productivity.
Petrobras will proceed with the Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD), which is under approval by Brazil’s Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP).
