Petrobras said on Thursday (27), that it has already started the long-term test (TLD) of farfan's discovery in the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin to evaluate the behavior of the reservoir in production and the characteristics of its oil.
The test was started on February 22 and is expected to last about 180 days. "Farfan's TLD is the first to be carried out in ultra-deep waters in the Northeast, whose well is located in a water slide of approximately 2,500m, being the deepest that Petrobras has ever put to produce in Brazil," the company said.
On Friday (21), the National Agency for Oil, Gas and Biofuels (ANP), had authorized the state to start production in the Farfan reservoir in ultra-deep waters of Sergipe. The IBAMA license for drilling was granted in December 2019 and is valid for 180 days. The deadline for completion of tests in the Sergipe-Alagoas basin is December 2020 and the perspective is to install two definitive FPSOs for exploration of the fields.
