Brazil oil rig operated for Petrobras tilts, well is shut

An oil platform operated by Queiroz Galvao Oleo e Gas SA for Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR4) in Brazil’s southeastern Campos Basin tilted 3 degrees and the well it was drilling was shut for safety reasons, the country’s oil regulator said.

The platform was “stabilized” and a “small” leak of drilling fluid was contained, the ANP, as the agency is known, said in an e-mailed statement late yesterday. The ANP said it will investigate the causes of the incident.
