Block 6 covers 5,549 square kilometres in the Mafia basin in offshore Tanzania, with a water depth of 1,800 metres. It is located approx.170 kilometres north of Block 2, where Statoil has made several high-impact gas discoveries. [1] The block is operated by Petrobras Tanzania Ltd. which holds a 38 percent working interest, Shell Deepwater Tanzania B.V. with a 50 percent stake and Statoil with a 12 percent working interest. [2] The block was first awarded to Petrobras during the third licensing round in 2005. In 2011, Petrobras entered into a farm-out agreement by granting 50 percent of its share to Shell. Finally, Petrobras agreed to farm-out a 12 percent working interest to Statoil in May 2013. [3] No findings have been announced yet.
