Perenco Petróleo e Gás do Brasil Ltda (Perenco Brazil) announce the commencement of their first drilling operations in Brazil with the spudding of the Moriche-1 exploration well on 6th November 2011. The well is located at a water depth of 1148 m in the BM-ES-37 Concession in the Espírito Santo Basin. The well is being drilled with the Ocean Star semi-submersible rig, which is operated by Brasdril Perfurações Ltda. The operations are expected to last approximately two months, after which the rig will be mobilised to the BM-ES-38 Concession to drill the Guarapari prospect, which is also in the Espirito Santo Basin.

Perenco Brazil is the operator of five exploration concessions located in the deepwater sector of the offshore Espírito Santo Basin. All five concessions were acquired in the 9th round of licensing of the ANP and are held in partnership with OGX Petróleo e Gás (50% share to each company).

Perenco is a oil & gas company with a presence in 16 countries, spanning from Africa to South and Central America, and from the Middle East to Europe. Perenco's expertise covers gas and oil operations, both onshore and offshore.

Perenco currently produces approximately 275,000 boepd. Exploration is a key part of Perenco's growth strategy and the group has established positions in world-class basins such as Brazil, Belize, Australia, Peru and the Northern part of Iraq.
