Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras on April 18 provided details of a well drilled in the offshore area known as Moita Bonita, in the Sergipe Basin.
Petrobras said the 3-SES-192 well had found a natural gas deposit with a thickness of 39 m at a depth of 5,227 m and below that an oil deposit with a thickness of 24 m. It was the fifth well to find a deposit in the Moita Bonita area.
Drilled but uncompleted wells have become an increasing point of contention—in both how to define them and how to count them.
For two years in a row since 2018, Texas RRC staff has taken two days on average to process standard drilling permits, one day below the legislative requirement, a release from the state agency said.
Positive results are emerging from fracturing field laboratories.
