SAO PAOLO (Bloomberg) -- Petrobras said about 188 m3 of oil was spilled at platform P-58 at Bacia dos Campos during a routine transfer to a vessel.

P-58 is located at the south coast of Espirito Santo state and the company said there’s no risk of the oil reaching shore, which is 80 km away.

In a regulatory filing, Petroleos Brasileiros SA said two vessels are on site to try to contain the incident, and that it’s investigating what went wrong.
