Papa Terra cluster
Production at the Papa Terra cluster decreased 7% from December 2023 to January 2024, mainly as a result of scheduled shut down of operations in end of January for the connection of well PPT-12 to the production system. In addition, the work with replacing the ESP-pumps in wells PPT-50, PPT-17, and PPT-37 has been initiated. These interventions are expected to limit the production capacity until mid-April and are in line with the necessary requitements to guarantee production stability and operational efficiency planned for operation in 2024.

Peroá cluster
Production at the Peroá cluster decreased 1% from December 2023 to January 2024 as a result of the sale of the natural gas volume outlined in the take-or-pay contract, lower than the asset’s current production capacity, aligned with the market demand in January.

Illinois Basin
Production at Illinois Basin increased 120% from December 2023 to January 2024. The increased production follows the launch of two new production wells. The completion and production initiation of the third new well, the Ziliak 34-1 well, have however experienced a slight delay due to adverse weather conditions.

Maha’s Assets
