Progress & Milestones

Offshore Area 1

To date, approximately 65 Tcf of recoverable natural gas has been discovered in the Offshore Area 1– the equivalent of a 12 billion barrel oil field. The results to date of the drillstem testing (DST) program in the Prosperidade and Golfinho/Atum complexes demonstrate the outstanding flow characteristics of the reservoirs. Each flow test successfully flowed at facility-constrained rates of 90 to 100 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), which supports well designs of 100 to 200 MMcf/d.
