Shell is already preparing offshore units and support vessels to carry out activities, Rio and inland cities will have a logistical and support base.

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]A Shell is licensing at Ibama the drilling of five pre-salt wells, two in the Sul de Gato do Mato block, in the Santos Basin, and another three in the Alto de Cabo Frio Oeste block, in the Santos Basin. Last week, the oil company signed the production sharing contracts for the areas and started the licensing processes the following day. The company intends to start drilling campaigns in January 2019.

In the Alto de Cabo Frio Oeste block, Shell is licensing the drilling of up to three exploratory wells. It will use a drillship with dynamic positioning and two PSV-type vessels, with a forecast of approximately 15 monthly trips. The logistical base for primary support has not yet been defined, but it will be in the city of Rio de Janeiro or Niterói (RJ). The company can use Porto do Forno, in Arraial do Cabo (RJ) for secondary support; the Port of Açu, in São João da Barra (RJ) or Port of Vitória (ES).

Air support will be provided at the airport in Jacarepaguá, in Rio de Janeiro (RJ), with the possibility of eventually using the airports in Cabo Frio, Macaé or Campos. The campaign in Alto de Cabo Frio Oeste should start in April 2019, to last 120 days.

In the Southern Gato do Mato block, in the Santos Basin, which is a continuation to the south of the BM-S-54 block, two wells are being licensed with the main objective of acquiring additional information about the reservoir discovered in BM-S-54. A training test is also planned. The logistical base for primary support for the activity has not yet been defined, but – as in the Alto de Cabo Frio Oeste campaign – it will be provided by Rio de Janeiro or Niterói (RJ). The drilling campaign is expected to start in January 2019 and is expected to last 150 days. Source E & P Brazil
