ANP discovers Petrobras platform with irregular situation

After inspection, the ANP (National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels) discovered that Petrobras' P-40 platform, in the Santos Basin, produced natural gas for 10 years without making the mandatory tax contributions. According to the CPI (Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry) of royalties that is running in the Assembly of Rio de Janeiro, about R $ 50 million ceased to be collected, representing deficit of R $ 10.4 billion for the state.

Although not such an expressive value for public coffers, the discovery caused surprise and warning that the inspection should be taken care of for possible wells that are in the same situation. When questioned, the state said only that it will respond adequately within the time limit estimated by Alerj.
