The company announced this morning that it has restarted production at well 7-ATL-2HP-RJS in the Atlanta field, in the Santos Basin. As reported, the company had stopped extracting oil from the well to carry out a repair on a production line on the surface.
After the adjustments, the Atlanta field returned to producing around 11,500 barrels of oil per day, contributing to the company’s total production reaching around 20,100 barrels of oil per day. Enauta is the operator of the area, with a 100% stake.
Meanwhile, last week, the National Petroleum Agency (ANP) approved the new Development Plan and the contractual extension for another 11 years of the field. “The approval of the new Development Plan and the contractual extension allows a considerable increase in the volume of oil to be produced in the field”, projected the company’s CEO, Décio Oddone.
According to the executive, the additional 11 years of production will enable a significant increase in the company’s reserves. An assessment by Enauta’s technical department estimates that 2P reserves (proved and probable) will grow by more than 35%, subject to future independent certification.
