Despite the enormous advances registered in the pre-salt cluster, the onshore oil exploration still getting positive results in their campaigns in several basins of Brazil. Responsible for the entire development chain in oil production in the sector, the exploration segment on Earth suffered Yes difficulties with the growth of the offshore operation, however, has been showing promising and with a lot of potential.
Oil production in these fields is ground of 35000 barrels per day. The basin of the Recôncavo, Bahia, for example, had his land the largest proven reserve part with 0.2 billion barrels. Already in proven reserves of natural gas, there was a significant increase of 44.5% in the last ten years.
Contrary to what one might assume, the oil and natural gas produced onshore are far from being exhausted, especially in mature Basin of the Recôncavo, where the volume of the reservoirs is still greater than the accumulated production since the 1940.
The PetroRecôncavo, which operates in Bahia since 2000, remains the largest independent operator of exploration and production of oil and gas, E&P, sector of Brazil, thanks to onshore exploitation of light oil (less common), in the basin of the Bahian Recôncavo.
However, it was not just in Bahia that there was this growing production. Along with the Recôncavo, mature land basins of Espirito Santo, Brazil, Sergipe and Alagoas produced 162,200 boe/d, being 131,600 bbl/d of oil and 4,900,000 of m ³/d of natural gas in the first months of the year.
In addition, the market estimates that the Earth’s oil production might double in the next period and the Brazilian Association of independent producers of oil and gas (Abpip) provides for an investment of $2 billion in the basins, as well as the creation of 200,000 jobs in five States. What demonstrates that Brazil still has great potential in oil exploration off the platforms.ACESSE AS REDES DA PANORAMA OFFSHORE:
