Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Galp Energia SGPS SA, Portugal’s biggest oil company, and Petroleo Brasileiro SA found evidence of oil in an onshore well in Brazil’s Potiguar basin.

The discovery was made at well 1GALP40RN in the POT-T-563 block, the National Petroleum Agency said on its website. The companies haven’t determined whether the discovery can be developed commercially. Lisbon-based Galp and Petrobras, based in Rio de Janeiro, each own 50 percent of the concession.
