BRAZIL'S AMAZON ACTION YIELDS MORE SUCCESS
Exploration in Brazil's Amazonas province continues to yield significant results. State owned Petroleos Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) disclosed details of two successful exploratory wells in the Rio Urucu area of the Amazonas Solimoes basin. Petrobras is pressing a campaign to turn the remote jungle region into a major oil and gas producing province (OGJ, Feb. 12, p. 17). Petrobras tapped a new field with a wildcat near Leste do Urucu field east of the Urucu River.
