Fossil Energy – Colombia
Petrobras has confirmed the discovery of natural gas in the Uchuva-1 exploratory well, drilled in deep waters of Colombia, 32 km off the coast and 76 km from the city of Santa Marta.
The Uchuva-1 well was drilled in the Tayrona Block in a water depth of approx. 830 meters.
The Tayrona Block is in Petrobras’ portfolio for active portfolio management and the opening of this new frontier is aligned with the company’s strategic pillar of maximizing its value with a focus on exploration of deep and ultradeep water assets.
The result achieved increases the prospects for developing a new frontier of exploration and production in Colombia.
