The purpose of the operation is to gather information about the region, which has yet to be assessed. Drilling is expected to reach a depth of 6,425 meters. The data and studies that are collected will be delivered to the ANP and become public at the end of the process.

Petrobras intends to send the SS-53 drilling rig to the region, which is expected to kick-off the activities by mid December. The company will be in charge of the operation and bear the costs of the drilling, since the intent is for the area to be developed in the future by Petrobras itself, after the signing of an Onerous Transfer agreement.
