A huge natural gas field has been found a short distance off Rio de Janeiro's coastline, Petrobras, Brazil's state-controlled oil company, says.
The company believes the new field, Jupiter, could match the recently discovered Tupi oil field in size.
Tupi is thought to be one of the largest fields discovered in the past 20 years.
The new field is located just 23 miles from Tupi, some 5,600 yards below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, around 290km from Rio de Janeiro, Petrobas says.
