Enauta announced the return of the operation of one of the production wells in the Atlanta field, in the Santos basin. Active production had been halted since November 2020.
The 7-ATL-4HB-RJS well was initially producing 11,000 barrels of oil per day. Enauta plans to put into production the second well in the field (7-ATL-3H-RJS) still in the first quarter of this year, initially extracting around 10,000 barrels of oil per day. Finally, the company also intends to reactivate a third well (7-ATL-2HP-RJS) by mid-2020.
Enauta estimates that the average production in Atlanta in 2021 will be 14 thousand barrels of oil per day, with a variation margin of 10% downwards or upwards, when the daily average is verified on an annual basis. The oil company is the operator of the field with a 100% stake, after Barra Energia leaves the project. The transfer of 50% of Barra to Enauta still depends on the green light from the National Petroleum Agency (ANP). The Administrative Council for Economic Defense has already endorsed the operation.
