Equinor unveils new projects for 2020

The head of Exploration of Equinor, Tim Dodson, said in the last Tuesday (26), which the company plans to drill from 30 to 40 wells in 2020 and that these would be on the Norwegian continental shelf, focusing on the Sea north and discoveries in the Barents Sea, he told Reuters.

In addition, the oil company’s operating efforts will be concentrated in Brazil, where the company plans to drill five wells in the next two years. “Brazil will be the hotspot for years to come,” he said Dodson. Some wells of strong impact, with resources estimated at more than 100 million barrels of oil equivalent, will be drilled in Brazil and also in the u.S. portion of the Gulf of Mexico.

However, the executive said the campaign will be “selective” with regard to increased area exploration in Brazil. Despite this, the company already plans to invest in the field carcará and believes that the country presents the best opportunities.
