OGX has discovered hydrocarbons in the Albian section of well 1-OGX-28D-RJS in the Campos Basin, offshore Brazil.

The OGX-28D well is located in the BM-C-41 block and is situated 80km off the coast of the state of Rio de Janeiro at a water depth of 126m.

A hydrocarbon column of 52m with 24m of net pay was encountered in carbonate reservoirs in the Albian section, according to Bloomberg.
