Equinor announces new contracts for well drilling related services on Bacalhau.

AvatarPosted by

The three contracts – signed with Baker Hughes, Halliburton, and Schlumberger – are estimated to be worth around US$ 455 million and will be key to the first development stage of the asset.

Baker Hughes will be responsible for the wells drilling and completion, Halliburton for the intervention and casing, and Schlumberger for the logging.

Currently, Equinor has licensing processes for 7 wells and two platforms on the Carcará (now Bacalhau) reservoir. One of the platforms is the long term FPSO to be delivered by MODEC, while the other one should be temporary and responsible for the Extended Well Testing. Both the platform’s coordinates came from Ibama documentation and are subject to change throughout the licensing process.

Bacalhau was discovered by Petrobras in 2012 but is currently owned by Equinor (operator), ExxonMobil, and Petrogal. The first oil is planned for 2024.

Geopost provides access to all the latest Ibama documentation regarding future wells and platforms in an organized environment, as well as subsurface data and composite logs on the mentioned areas.
