Petrobras has completed drilling well 3-BRSA-1101-SPS (3-SPS-100), informally known as Carioca Norte, located in the pre-salt layer of Santos Basin. Results obtained confirm the presence of light oil in the Carioca region, which had already been confirmed by wells 1-BRSA-491-SPS (discovery), 3-BRSA-861-SPS (Carioca Nordeste) and 3-BRSA-1023-SPS (Carioca Sela).

The new well reached total depth of 5,576 meters. It is located in block BM-S-9 of assessment area 1-BRSA-491-SPS, at a water depth of 2,152 meters, and 275 km off the coast of Sao Paulo. 3-BRSA-1101-SPS is the fourth well drilled in the Carioca region, 6.5 km from the discovery well, between the Carioca and Carioca Nordeste areas. The fluid samples collected through tests show that the oil is similar to the one found in other wells of the area.

The consortium of block BM-S-9 is operated by Petrobras (45%) in partnership with BG E&P Brasil (30%) and Repsol Sinopec Brasil (25%). The consortium will proceed with the activities and investments necessary to appraisal the area, according to the Appraisal Plan approved by the National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP).
