RIO DE JANEIRO -- Two formation tests on well 4-RJS-647 (4-BRSA-711-RJS) in the Santos basin’s Tupi area have proved high productivity of pre-salt carbonate reservoirs, according to Petrobras.

The well flowed at an equipment-restricted rate of 5,500 b/d of light oil (approximately 32° API). The company estimates initial production of up to 50,000 b/d of oil.
