The consortium responsible for the Libra oilfield in the Santos Basin pre-salt has completed the drilling of well 3-BRSA-1310-RJS, located in the central area of the block. The new well has revealed the presence of hydrocarbons in a low-porosity reservoir, providing important information for the ongoing appraisal campaign over this extensive area. It is the fourth well drilled in the Libra field.

The consortium is also drilling at two other locations. The 3-RJS-739A well in the northwest region of the block has already detected carbonate reservoirs containing oil, and coring operations (reservoir sample collection) are under way. In addition, drilling has just commenced on well 3-RJS-741 in the North.

The Libra block was acquired in October 2013 and is in the exploratory phase. The consortium has already contracted an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel) for conducting extended well tests. This vessel has a capacity of 50 kbbl/d oil and 4 million m3/d gas. Additionally, another FPSO for the Libra Pilot Project, with capacity of 180 kbbl/d oil and 12 million m3/d gas, is in the bidding phase.
