Roncador field

The giant field of Roncador was by far the largest discovery made in Brazil in the 90’s. Holding more than 3.3 billion boe in reserves and located in ultradeep waters – 1,500 to 1,900 meters – its development has set up new technological and economical frontiers for Petrobras’s offshore production.

Located in the north-eastern portion of the Campos Basin, 125 km off the Brazilian coast, Roncador covers an area of approximately 110 square kilometres and is comprised of two main blocks, saturated with 18 to 31° API oil.

Due to the differences in oil characteristics and to the massive reserves involved, Petrobras decided to develop Roncador in modules.
