HOUSTON, Apr. 20
-- With the start of an extended well test (ETW) on the Brava presalt discovery well (OGJ Online, Apr. 19, 2011), Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) now has five presalt discoveries on production in the Campos basin off Brazil.

Production started from Jubarte during September 2008, Baleia Franca during July 2010, Carimbe ETW in the Caratinga area during December 2010, Tracaja ETW in the Marlim Leste area during February (OGJ, Mar. 7, 2011, Newsletter), and Brava ETW in the Marlim area during April.

Petrobras in its announcement on the start of Brava presalt production had incorrectly stated that it only had three presalt discoveries on production in the Campos basin.
