HOUSTON, Oct. 7
-- An exploratory well in the southwestern Campos basin has cut an oil column of more than 100 m with about 40 m of highly porous and permeable sandy reservoirs, said OGX Petroleo e Gas Participacoes SA, Rio de Janeiro.

The 1-OGX-1-RJS well, in 140 m of water 85 km off Rio de Janeiro in the BM-C-43 block, is still drilling toward deeper objectives using the Diamond Offshore Ocean Ambassador semisubmersible. OGX, which gave no depths or other details, holds 100% interest in the block.

The block is southwest of Maromba oil field, which Petroleo Brasileiro SA declared commercial in late 2006.
