With offshore fields in shallow waters and onshore fields, the Rio Grande do Norte and Ceará region is the biggest onshore (land) oil producer in Brazil.

We have operated in Rio Grande do Norte since 1951. The first field we discovered was Ubarana, off the Guamaré coast and in operation since 1976.

We commenced our activities in Ceará in 1967, and the first field we discovered there was Xaréu, in 1977.

The first onshore well went on stream in December 1979 and is still active, although it is now powered by the sun.

Canto do Amaro is among the biggest onshore fields currently in production in the country. It started producing in 1986.

The Continuous Steam Injection Project (Vaporduto) is in operation at the Vale of Açu region (state of Rio Grande do Norte). Considered the world's largest, it is approximately 30 km long and the first to operate with superheated steam.

There are 36 production platforms installed in the Potiguar Basin:
