Following Shell's steps towards increasing its portfolio of services in Brazil, Statoil does not forgive and increases its presence in the Brazilian oil and gas market.

Statoil without any doubt it will be one of the great companies operating in the Brazilian oil and gas segment. Its acquisitions and participation in oil auctions leave no room for doubt in this regard. It has been picking up assets and wells in several of our sedimentary basins, together with Shell and Exxon Mobil. Despite the name “Statoil” being strong in the market, it ended up changing to “Equinor”, ​​due to its expansion of new areas of activity for the company.

Last week, Statoil began the environmental licensing of 5 wells in the pre-salt region in the North of Carcará, in a concession to share the 2nd pre-salt auctions in 2017 and the base of the company's logistical operations will be in Niterói – RJ, at the Brasco base. For you to have an idea, if the company waited for the seismic surveys to be carried out in the area to be sure of the geological potential, this was the strategy adopted by Shell, otherwise, “the government could turn a blind eye” and increase fees or taxes of these assets if the seismic surveys revealed a greater potential than those offered in the auctions.

Statoil is currently drilling in exploratory block BM-S-8 at this time in Carcará with operations expected for 4 years. Seadrill has signed with the company and will use the West Saturn rig to drill in some of these assets for testing, if all is successful, it will use this offshore unit for 6 more wells over these years of the contract. There are followers of ours working on this probe, check out some of them in this Seadrill recruitment article.
