Shell is hoping to extend the life of an offshore oil field in Brazil’s Campos Basin until 2021, potentially adding five years of operation and as many as 20 million more barrels, Osman Tosun, the company’s field development manager, said Friday.

Shell on Friday spudded on of four new wells planned at the mature Bijupira-Salema field in an effort to extent production, Tosun told the Brazil Offshore conference in Macae.
