While not giving further details of the prospect and no word from the Brazilian administration, the Sergipe government has said "it is the largest oil discovery in the world this year".

"What we are doing is not releasing numbers because we can't. We're making tests and in fact it is a great discovery, an exceptional discovery, a beautiful discovery and Ptrobras needs of great discoveries," said Gracas Foster at the annual congress of the World Steel Association, WSA.

Sergipe governor Jackson Barreto anticipated in Aracaju the regional capital that Mines and Energy minister Edison Lobao will announced details on October 23. The area offshore the states of Sergipe and Alagoas is part of the oil exploitation chronogram of Petrobras for 2018.
