Shell will have at least until December 2021 to complete the assessment of the discovery of Gato do Mato, in the Santos Basin pre-salt. Decision of the ANP board, authorized the combination of the exploration work of the original concession (BM-S-54) with the sharing contract (Sul de Gato do Mato).
– Investment commitments are the drilling of an appraisal well; new acquisition and processing of OBN (ocean bottom nodes) seismic; and studies of geological modeling and reservoir flow.
– Shell recently notified the ANP of the presence of oil in well 3-SHEL-32D-RJS, in the south of Gato do Mato. There is no additional information – the notifications released by the agency only inform the presence of oil, natural gas or both.
