The well is located in the Poço Verde Discovery Evaluation Plan area (concession BM-SEAL-4) in the ultra-deepwaters of Sergipe-Alagoas Basin.

It is called Poço Verde 1, and lies 58 kilometres off the coast of Aracaju at a depth of 2,196 metres.

The reservoirs found have good porosity characteristics, confirming project expectations.

The Poço Verde accumulation is being explored as part of the Sergipe-Alagoas Basin deepwater development programme.

With a 75 per cent stake in BM-SEAL-4, Petrobras is the concession operator, partnered by India-based company ONGC (25 per cent).

They are to go ahead with the activities planned for the area.
