    Petrobrás has found new evidence of oil in the Libra field, at the Santos basin, through the 3-BRSA-1322-RJS well. The result, released this week by the National Oil Agency (ANP) was obtained through drilling into water depths of  1.911 meterss, using the West Carina probe, from Seadrill.

    Started in September of 2015, the exploration campaign is a part of the area’s discovery evaluation plan (PAD), which had its release anticipated by the ANP. Throughout 2015, there were three evidences of oil and gas presence found in the field, as well as one of gas alone.

    Petrobrás has performed all activities predicted in the Libra exploration program, except for the long term test (TLD) in the area. The company’s plan is that the operation is conducted during the first quarter of 2017. Operated by the state-owned company with a 40% share, the field is managed by the consortium which also includes Total (20%), Shell (20%), CNPC (10%) and CNOOC (10%).
