Endeavor Management announced today that Petrobras has retained the Houston-based consulting firm to provide third-party review and advisory services on the Papa Terra project. Endeavor will work with the Papa-Terra Integrated Project Team to identify potential improvements to the drilling and completion program of all wells to be drilled with the new Tension-Leg Wellhead Platform (TLWP) and Tender-Assisted Drilling Rig (TAD) for the Papa Terra field.

The Papa Terra field is a heavy crude oil field located in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil. Bruce Crager, Executive Vice President of Endeavor Management, stated, "This is a major project for Petrobras and is their first use of a TLWP and tender-assisted drilling unit. We are pleased to have been selected to join Petrobras on the Integrated Project Team along with personnel from Chevron, who are a partner in the Papa Terra field.”
