Petrobras has discovered a new gas accumulation in the Espírito Santo Basin post-salt cluster.
The discovery was made when drilling well 3-BRSA-1259-ESS (ANP nomenclature)/ 3-ESS-222 (Petrobras nomenclature), known as Tanganika, at a water depth of 1,043 meters, within the Malombe Discovery Evaluation Plan (PAD) area, 72 km off the Espírito Santo coast.
The discovery was confirmed by well logging in reservoirs at a depth of around 2,880 meters. The total depth of the well is 2,996 meters.
The consortium operated by Petrobras (89.89%) in partnership with Repsol Sinopec (11.11%) will proceed with operations as planned, and will run a formation test to better evaluate the discovery.
