The blocks BM-C-39 and BM-C-40 comprise the Tubarão Martelo and Rêmora fields and are located approximately 95 Kilometers off the Brazilian coast at a water depth of around 110 meters.   The Tubarão Martelo Field will be developed with FPSO OSX-3, and its production start-up is estimated for the end of the year.
