In a statement, Karoon said the appraisal had reached a depth of 1,760m at the Paleocene reservoir.

"Drilling will continue before wireline logging to confirm the presence and extent of the hydrocarbon column," Karoon said.

The Kangaroo-2 appraisal well is located in the Santos basin's block S-M-1165, off Brazil's southeast coast. Karoon holds a 65% operating stake in the block.
