Drilling Activity Summary


Operator Repsol completed #1A Gavea in Brazil's ultra-deep pre-salt block BM-C-33 in the Campos Basin. The well hit a hydrocarbon column of 175 m in a good-quality reservoir of silicified carbonates of Macabu. It was drilled to 6,230 m and was tested on a 32/64-in. choke flowing 16 MMcf of gas and 4 Mbbl of oil per day. This is the fourth appraisal well in the license, which comprises the Seat, Gavea and Pao de Acucar (PdA) discoveries. The #1A Gavea completes the appraisal drilling and testing in BM-C-33, and Repsol will now evaluate the subsurface data and assess development concepts. Madrid-based Repsol owns 35% of BM-C-33 with partners Statoil, 35%, and Petrobras, 30%. In the third quarter of 2016, Statoil will take over as operator of the license.
