Enauta Participações SA confirmed oil in the Atlanta NE accumulation in a new area within Atlanta field in Santos basin, about 185 km southeast of Rio de Janeiro.

Enauta Participações SA confirmed oil in the Atlanta NE accumulation in a new area within Atlanta field in Santos basin, about 185 km southeast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Atlanta NE oil was originally identified in well 9-SHEL-19D-RJS drilled in 2006. Enauta concluded drilling and logging of well 9-ATL-8DP and identified oil with excellent petrophysical properties at a 57 m section (measured depth). The accumulation is at a 2,644 m depth, shallower than the reservoir under development.

The new well aims to collect additional data from the accumulation while drilling production well 7-ATL-7HA-RJS, part of the six producing wells campaign of Atlanta’s full development Phase 1 (OGJ Online, Mar. 28, 2023).

Atlanta’s Phase 1 targets first oil by mid-2024 with a production capacity of 50,000 b/d of oil from six wells connected to the Atlanta FPSO.

Enauta estimates that Atlanta’s NE in-place resources exceed 230 million bbl of oil. The company will conduct additional studies for its full technical-economic potential and to integrate the field’s ongoing development to add to Atlanta’s certified 158.9 million bbl 2P oil reserves, the company said.

Atlanta field, operated by Enauta Energia SA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Enauta (100%), lies in 1,500 m of water.
