RIO DE JANEIRO, Mar. 3 -- State-owned Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) plans to start development drilling soon in Manati gas field in the Camamu-Almada basin off southern Bahia, Brazil.
Petrobras expects the field to produce 6 million cu m/day of gas at peak. It is waiting on an environmental license.
The campaign will use two rigs to drill seven shallow-water development wells and an exploratory well in shallow water on the BCAM-40 block. Each well should take about 60 days to drill.
