The results of the formation test confirmed the productivity of the reservoirs. The well is located 226 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, at around 6 km from the Iara discovery well, at a water depth of 2,197 metres. The consortium will carry on the activities set in the Evaluation Plan approved by the National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency. To date, the well 3-RJS-715D (3-BRSA-1181D-RJS), known as Iara High Angle is being drilled, and it is intended to go through the pre-salt with a high angle, with the goal of evaluating reservoir productivity in the central area of Iara. Galp Energia, through its subsidiary Petrogal Brasil, holds a stake of 10% in the contractor group that explores BM-S-11, while Petroleo Brasileiro Petrobras SA (Petrobras) (operator) holds 65% and BG Group PLC holds the remaining 25%.  Full Article
