Exploration

The five E&P Novapetroleo concessions were acquired during the 11th Bid Round of the ANP on May 15, 2013. The exploration period will be up to five years, and over 27 years of production in case of commercial discovery. The Minimum Work Program commited for these blocks require the acquisition of 117,5 km2 of 3D Seismic Surveys and the drilling of at least 6 explorations wells.

REC-T-84 - Concession area of 29 km2
This block is located south of the Sauipe Field and the exploratory objective is the verification of geological features similar to the adjacent field or extension of the field into the block. PEM provided:
     - 2 exploratory wells
     - 15,12 km2 of 3D seismic

 

REC-T-104 - Concession area of 30.4 km2
This block comprises the set of four blocks located around the Fazenda Santo Estevão Field. The exploration campaign will be directed to the identification of geological features similar to Fazenda Santo Estevão e Sauípe Field. PEM provided:
- 1 exploration well
- 15,12 km2 of 3D seismic


REC-T-105 – Concession area of 22,9 Km2
Located on the Quiricó Platform, the Fazenda Santo Estevão Field is inside this block. The exploratory campaign will be directed to the identification of similar geological features to the adjacente field. PEM provided:
    - 3 exploratory wells
    - 22,9 km2 of 3D seismic

REC-T-115 – Concession area of 28,7 Km2
Among the exploratory blocks of Novapetroleo, this is the only one located in the Low Alagoinhas. Expected producing reservoirs are more deeper than the other blocks, with chances also to be producers of gas. PEM provided:
    - No commitment exploratory well
    - 28,7 km2 of 3D seismic

REC-T-116Concession area of 31.3 km2
The block is located south of the Santo Estevão Field and north of the Mata Catu Fault. PEM provided:
      - No commitment exploratory wells
      - 10.16 km2 of 3D seismic
