Prio Requests Drilling License for Wahoo Development

AvatarPosted by

Prio has requested a drilling license for the development of Wahoo, which currently includes 4 producers, 2 injectors and 3 possible wells yet to be mapped. Main targets are pre-salt reservoirs in the Macabu Formation located around 4750 and 5000 meters deep at water depths of up to 1500 meters. Prio is currently conducting a drilling campaign on Frade using semi-sub Norbe VI, which could also be used on Wahoo.

Wahoo’s first oil is expected in early 2024 and the production infrastructure will include a 35 km tieback to nearby FPSO Frade. On that note, the company also had news regarding Frade, as it recently announced on July 17th the results from the first well on the current campaign, which stabilized at a production rate of 8,000 bpd and helped the company reach the milestone of 100,000 bpd.
