The Campos Basin is located approximately 120 miles (200 km) northeast of Rio de Janeiro (Fig. 29-1) and covers an area of about 12,000 square miles (30,000 km2) extending from a small onshore portion to the 660 foot (200-m) isobath, between 21° and 24° south latitude. The Garoupa and Pampo fields (Fig. 29-2) produce from structures in the Macaé Formation, an entirely offshore carbonate sequence which occurs in the central and eastern part of the Campos Basin.
