Petrobras said on Friday it has identified the presence of hydrocarbon in a pioneer well in the CM-411 block, located in the Campos Basin pre-salt, in the State of Rio de Janeiro.

Well 1-BRSA-1377-RJS, informally called Urissanê, is located approximately 200 km from the coast, in a water depth of 2,950 meters, which found the presence of oil in reservoirs in the pre-salt section.

Petrobras said the well data will be analyzed to better target exploratory activities in the area and assess the potential of the discovery.

The CM-411 block was acquired in September 2017, in the 14th Bidding Round of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), under a concession regime, together with blocks CM-210, CM-277, CM -344, CM-346 and CM-413.

Petrobras is the operator of the block and holds a 50% interest, in partnership with ExxonMobil Exploração Brasil Ltda. (50%).
