Petrobras completes first Libra well. Production in 2017

Brazilian oil company Petrobras has completed the first well in the Santos Basin’s pre-salt Libra oilfield, offshore Brazil.

The well, drilled by Seadrill’s West Carina drillship, is now fully fitted out and ready to produce oil and natural gas, Petrobras said.

The 3-RJS-739A well, known as NW3, is located in the northwest sector of the Libra block, around 187 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro and approximately 5.3 km south of discovery well 2-ANP-2A-RJS, in a water depth of 1,951 meters.

The NW3 has been fitted with an intelligent dual-zone system to facilitate real-time control and production monitoring. It will start production in 2017, connected to Pioneiro de Libra FPSO, during the first Libra extended well test.

The Libra Consortium is formed by Petrobras (operator, 40% interest), Shell (20%), Total (20%), CNPC (10%), and CNOOC (10%). The production sharing contract will be managed by state-owned Pré-Sal Petróleo S.A. (PPSA).
