Petrobras has discovered an oil accumulation on concession BM-POT-17, the first in the deep waters of Potiguar Basin, in its portion located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte.

The discovery was made while drilling well 1-BRSA-1205-RNS (1-RNS-158), informally known as Pitu, at a water depth of 1,731 meters and 55 km off the coast of Rio Grande do Norte state.

The oil column was confirmed through log data and fluid samples, which will be characterized through laboratory analysis. The well is currently being drilled at a depth of 4,197 meters and drilling will proceed until 5,028 meters.

Petrobras is the operator of the concession with 80% stake and Petrogal Brasil S.A. holds the remaining 20%.
