“Production is progressing well and is on schedule in the Campos Basin, and a third production well in the Tubarão Azul Field will be connected in the coming weeks. In exploration, we began drilling new prospects in the Campos Basin where we continue to have strong expectations for our activities. In addition, we are continuing to develop the Tubarão Martelo Field, in the Campos Basin, and the Gavião Real Field project in the Parnaíba Basin where we expect to begin commercial gas production in early 2013. We expect to invest about US$1.2 billion towards capital expenditures in 2013 to continue delivering on our potential in both exploration and production,” Carneiro continued.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

OGX continued its successful exploratory campaign in the third quarter.
  • Receipt of environmental authorization from the Brazilian Environmental and Natural Renewable Resources Institute (IBAMA) to drill in the BM-C-37 and BM-C-38 blocks in the Campos Basin
  • New important discoveries of hydrocarbons in the Bom Jesus accumulation in the Parnaíba Basin
  • Submitted the winning bid for a block in the Lower Magdalena Valley Basin upon participating in Colombia’s 2012 National Agency of Hydrocarbonates (ANH)

Other:
  • In October, Eike Batista, controlling shareholder of OGX, granted the Company an option to require him to purchase up to US$1.0 billion of new common shares of OGX at a price of R$6.30 per share, conditional upon the Company’s additional capital requirement and the absence of more favorable alternatives
