Statoil Confirms High-impact Discovery Offshore Brazil

Dow Jones Newswires --
Norwegian oil company Statoil ASA (STO) confirmed Monday it has made a high-impact discovery offshore Brazil, together with operator Repsol Sinopec and partner Petrobras (PBR).

The discovery was made in the Pao de Acucar prospect, about 195 kilometers offshore Rio de Janeiro State at a water depth of 2,800 meters.

A test flowed 5,000 barrels a day of light oil and 28.5 million cubic feet a day of natural gas.

This is the third discovery in the BM-C-33 block, and "confirms the area's high potential," Statoil said in a statement.

Repsol Sinopec is the operator of the exploration consortium with a 35% stake. Statoil holds a share of 35% and Petrobras holds 30%. Repsol Sinopec is a alliance between Spain's Repsol YPF SA (REP.MC) and China's Sinopec (SHI).

Statoil Confirms High-impact Discovery Offshore Brazil, more oil for the world. Get that oil out of the ground and to market.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

More nat gas. When are we going to begin retrofitting our domestic fleet to nat gas? When? Maybe IF is the better answer. The transition must begin someday. Really.

As more world oil reserves are revealed they can cause a lowering of world prices as more supply sources are available.

It wasn't Bush, it was the Ex-Im Bank and it was not a gift, it was a loan.

That is almost an insignificant amount of oil based on worldwide consumption.

Seems like there's a lot more oil out there than we thought ...

I wonder if we'll need to revise the peak oil date ...?

If they bring in the wells, they'll be just as greedy as the rest and will sell to whomever pays the most.
