    Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR4), Brazil’s state-controlled oil company, found traces of oil in an onshore well in the POT-T-609 block of the country’s Potiguar Basin.

    The discovery in well 1BRSA1038RN hasn’t yet been declared commercially viable, according to a posting on the website of Brazil’s National Petroleum Agency.

    Petrobras last week said it discovered oil in the 1BRSA1034RN well in the same block.
