The drilling of new PetroRio wells will take place in Campo de Frade, in the Campos Basin. The company is offering job vacancies in the state of Rio de Janeiro

On April 26th, PetroRio obtained the Operating License, granted by the Brazilian Institute for the Environment (Ibama) for the drilling of new wells in the Frade field, located in the Campos Basin. After the Ibama concession, PetroRio, which is offering several job openings in Rio de Janeiro, mobilized the Norbe VI rig, from Ocyan, to start the revitalization of the field in the coming days.

About PetroRio's new well drilling project

Roberto Monteiro, CEO of PetroRio, recently informed that the drilling campaign of new wells in the Frade field will receive US$ 210 million in investments. In the first stage of the Campo de Frade revitalization project, three wells will be drilled, one producing well and two injection wells. In the next phase, which has no date, three new wells should be drilled.

In the future, PetroRio intends to connect the Wahoo field, also in Campos Basin, to the Frade FPSO. Therefore, PetroRio will form another production cluster, sharing the entire infrastructure with the Frade field, in the same way as was done in Tubarão Martelo and Polvo.
