Petrobras announces oil discovery in the Gulf of Mexico
PETROBRAS announces the discovery of oil, in Lower Tertiary reserves, in deep waters in the central region of the Gulf of Mexico, in the United States, by the consortium its subsidiary, Petrobras America, headquartered in Houston, Texas, participates in. The discovery was made in well Tiber-1, located 400 kilometers southeast of Huston, at a depth of 1,260 meters from the water line, in the Keathley Canyon quadrant, in Block KC 102. Petrobras America holds a 20% stake in the Tiber prospect, and its partners are BP, the operator with a 62% stake, and ConocoPhillips, with 18%.

The Tiber-1 well reached a total depth of 10,685 meters, the deepest well ever drilled by the oil industry. Several oil-bearing reservoirs were found in the Lower Tertiary exploratory objective. The preliminary exploratory assessment of the results points to a large oil discovery.

As such, Petrobras consolidates its position in deep and ultra deep waters in the Gulf of Mexico, in the new Lower Tertiary frontier, benefitting from its wide-ranging experience and technology developed in deep and ultra deep water operations in Brazil.
