The third well drilled by Petrobras in the Moita Bonita area, offshore Brazil, in the BM-SEAL-10 Block of the Sergipe-Alagoas basin, has proved the extension of the gas and light oil discovery made in that area. This well, informally known as Moita Bonita 3 (3-BRSA-1244-SES / 3-SES-182), is the second extension well drilled in the area, and is 82 km off the coast of Sergipe, approximately 5 km from discovery well Moita Bonita 1-BRSA-1088-SES (1-SES-168), and at a water depth of 2,790 m. Drilling confirmed the existence of 40-m thick reservoirs with good permeability and porosity conditions, consistent with the project’s expectations. After drilling was concluded, a formation test was conducted, which proved the presence of 41° API oil with good reservoir productivity. The Moita Bonita accumulation is part of the Sergipe-Alagoas basin ultra-deepwater development program. Petrobras is the operator with a 100% interest.
