Four pre-salt areas go to auction and raise more than 3 billion to the government

Last Thursday, June 7th, the new auction of four pre-salt areas was offered by ANP, the National Petroleum Agency, which generated about R $3.15 billion to the federal government.

The Manakin blocks, two brothers, and three Marias were purchased by the Petrobras company and by consortia formed by the foreign companies Statoil (Norway), Petrogal (Portugal), BP Energy (UK), Shell (UK) and Chevron (USA).

This was the third pre-salt auction under the production-sharing scheme, where the winning companies offer a higher percentage of surplus oil than the future production. The ANP considers that the three sold blocks will generate a profit of R $738 million in investment.
