Petrobras Finds Oil Seep Near Chevron Spill in Brazil Waters

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil’s state-run oil producer, reported a seep at its Roncador project near the Chevron Corp. field where 3,000 barrels leaked into the Atlantic Ocean in November.

Drops of crude were detected coming out of the seabed at the Roncador area, Brazil’s petroleum regulator, known as ANP, said in an e-mailed statement yesterday. Petrobras, as the Rio de Janeiro-based company is known, confirmed the seep in a separate statement.
