Without revealing amount of investments, oil company announces number of wells for next year
Petrobras will drill seven to eight exploratory wells in 2020. The information was released by the oil company’s E&P director Carlos Alberto Oliveira during the 2nd Pre-Salt Petroleum Technical Forum, anticipating that most of the campaign will be directed to pre-salt areas, governed under the production sharing model.
Although the executive did not inform the location of the new wells, sources revealed that part of the campaign will be held in auctioned areas in the 3rd and 4th sharing rounds. The program will include the drilling of the first exploratory wells in Dois Irmãos and Alto de Cabo Frio Central, both in the Campos Basin, and in the Três Marias block, in the Santos Basin, as well as new campaigns in areas where campaigns have already taken place.
