"It is a historic moment, a new era," President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said at an onshore ceremony commemorating the first oil from the Tupi
field, after bad weather diverted his plans to visit the platform 300 kilometers (190 miles) offshore.
If the estimate is accurate, this new find will rival the nearby Tupi
oil field as the largest discovery on this side of the planet since Mexico's Cantarell field was discovered in 1976.

Lula has been emboldned by the recent discovery of the Tupi
field, an offshore oil super-giant which can produce up to 1m b/d from ultra-deep Fms in Brazil's Santos Basin.
The government-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA, or Petrobras, said the new "ultra-deep" Tupi
field could hold as much as eight billion barrels of recoverable light crude, sending Petrobras shares soaring and prompting predictions that Brazil could join the world's "top 10" oil producers.
