Petrobras goes ultra-deep in the Northeast

Petrobras started a long-term test in the Farfan area, located approximately 70 kilometers from the coast of Sergipe. The purpose of the test is to evaluate the production behavior of the reservoir and the characteristics of its oil. The information collected will support the next steps of the Sergipe Deep-Water Project. The well is located at a water depth of approximately 2,500 meters, making it the deepest that Petrobras has ever drilled for production in Brazil. The expected average production during the realization of the test should be approximately 7,000 barrels of oil and 500,000 cubic meters of associated gas per day. The test should last 180 days, with demobilization planned for the second half of 2020.
