New well in Libra confirms extension of the oil discovery
The Libra Consortium has completed the drilling and evaluation of the seventh well in the block, located in the Santos Basin pre-salt cluster. With it, the Consortium found the largest oil column (net pay) ever discovered in Libra, measuring 410 meters thick. This column surpasses the last one found, which came in at 301 meters and was announced last March.
Called 3-BRSA-1339A-RJS (3-RJS-742A), and known informally as NW2, the well is 10.3 km south of discovery well 2-ANP-2A-RJS. This drilling is part of the commitment made in the Discovery Assessment Plan (PAD) for the 2-ANP-2A-RJS well, approved by the ANP on February 26, 2016.
