Ibama releases seven wells and training test in Carcará

January 11, 2018


Statoil received an environmental license from IBAMA for the drilling of up to seven wells in the exploratory block area BM-S-8, Carcará, in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin. The license, which is valid for four years, also releases a short-term training test in an existing well.

An agreement with Seadrill foresees the use of the West Saturn drill ship for drilling a well and conducting the test. Depending on the results, the company may exercise the option of using West Saturn to drill the remaining seven wells.

“Testing Carcará’s discovery will provide important information for the development of the field,” said Anders Opedal, president of Statoil in Brazil.
