Refined Shale Gas today announced that it will start natural gas production deep offshore in the Maranhao Basin located 100km off the northeast coast of Brazil.

Online PR News – 28-April-2021 – SAO PAULO – Refined Shale Gas’ Maranhao Basin Project is a deep-water gas field development located off 100km off the north eastern coast of Brazil and the basin has a depth of approximately 1,470 meters.

Refined Shale Gas will construct 4 deep-water subsea wells and will aim to produce a minimum capacity of 250 million standard cubic feet per day which is equivalent to 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
