Brazil’s Petrobras sets domestic well-depth record

EFE – Fox News Latino, 4/30/2015

Petrobras has set a new Brazilian record for exploratory drilling by reaching a water depth of nearly 3,000 meters (9,836 feet), the state-controlled oil giant said.

The 3-BRSA-1296-SES well was drilled to a water depth of 2,988 meters – eight meters more than the 3-SES-184 well Petrobras drilled in February in that same basin – and a total depth of 6,060 meters (19,868 feet).

Only six wells in the world exceed the depth of 3-BRSA-1296-SES, three of which were drilled by India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation in that South Asian nation and three by U.S. energy companies Murphy Oil and Chevron Corp. in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Petrobras said.
