FIRST SANTOS BASIN OFFSHORE CRUDE FLOW ON LINE

Petroleos Brasileiro SA has started up the first commercial production of oil from the Santos basin off Brazil's southern coast. Although drilling has occurred in the offshore portion of the Santos basin since 1970, only Merluza gas/condensate field currently is under development (OGJ, Jan. 14, p. 47). Petrobras started flow of 3,000 b/d of 42 gravity oil from Coral field's discovery well, BSS-56, on a platform in 150 m of water about 180 km off Parana state.
