Rosneft Brasil (100% owned Rosneft subsidiary) and Queiroz Galvão Óleo e Gás signed an agreement to charter an onshore drilling rig and associated rig services. Schlumberger, in association with Queiroz Galvão Óleo e Gás, will provide Integrated Project Management (IPM) services for the drilling operations in the Solimoes Basin as part of Rosneft Brasil's exploration program in the Amazon region.
The drilling, scheduled to commence on January 9, 2017, marks the start of the active phase of Rosneft Brasil’s exploration operations within the Solimoes project. Rosneft Brasil is planning to drill at least 2 wells within the upcoming drilling campaign with the scope of obtaining valuable geological information and confirming the exploration potential and hydrocarbon resources.
The Solimões project establishes Rosneft as an operator in Brazil, a country with major upstream growth opportunities both onshore and offshore. Rosneft also continues to evaluate gas monetization options for the Solimoes Project.
