Recently we’ve posted that TotalEnergies and Shell/Ecopetrol have started the licensing process for exploratory drilling in 5 blocks located in South Santos. There appears to be a growing interest in the area recently, as there are also several 3D seismic research projects in the region, some still being licensed and others already in progress.
In the meantime, part of our team has been interpreting potential target areas using Geopost’s public data and interpretation tools. At first, considering Baúna field as an analog, we pictured some targets between the Oligocene and Maastrichtian. However, looking more closely at the available data, some targets also appear to be in the Maastrichtian to Aptian range.
What are your expectations for the exploration of this southwestern portion of the Santos Basin?
