Petrobras discovered oil in Espírito Santo Basin, onshore Brazil. The company also completed the formation test on well 3-BRSA-1286-SES in concession BM-SEAL-11, in ultradeep waters of Sergipe-Alagoas Basin.

The discovery was made while drilling well 1-BRSA-1293-AM (ANP nomenclature), which is informally known as Jusante do Anebá. Well drilling reached 2,040 m total depth.

The well was drilled about 12 m west of Aasta Hansteen in the northern Norwegian Sea. The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in Upper Cretaceous reservoir rocks.

Well 25/6-5 S hit a 10-m (33-ft) gas column in the Hugin Formation in Middle Jurassic reservoir rocks near the Skirne Field in the central North Sea. 

The Yeti discovery was made in Walker Ridge Block 160, about 15 km (9 miles) south of the Big Foot Field and 11 km (7 miles) from the Cascade Field, Statoil said in a news release.

UK Oil & Gas Investments Plc found more than 8 Bbbl of shale oil in Horse Hill Field in Weald Basin. The basin is near London’s second-busiest airport, Bloomberg said. 

Block R’s surface area is about 672 sq km, and it is in about 100 m to 1,400 m of water. JX Nippon is increased its presence in Malaysia.

The Zebedee well (14/15b-5) in PL004b discovered 25 m (81 ft) of net oil-bearing reservoir and 17 m (55 ft) of net gas-bearing reservoir in the Falkland Islands, Premier said in a news release.

Statoil ASA made another natural gas discovery in Block 2 offshore Tanzania, Reuters said. The company will now appraise one of its previous seven discoveries, and then evaluate several projects.

The discovery was made at the Bestari-1 exploration well in the deepwater Block R production-sharing contract and is being evaluated with a view to planning an appraisal campaign.

 Statoil discovered 5 Bcm to 9 Bcm of recoverable gas, likely prolonging the production plateau of about 130 Mboe/d. Aasta Hansteen was thought to hold 47 Bcm of gas, Reuters said

On average in Indonesia, Eni produces 17 Mboe/d. Eni currently has three rigs working offshore Libya in Area D, and currently produces about 350 Mboe/d in the country.
