Nanotechnology to expand oil and gas extraction

Petrobras will invest about R$ 30 million in nanotechnology for a more effective development in oil production and gas in the country. The measure should be adopted over the next five years.

Known as Spartan, the project is characterized by capsules which, when subjected to certain environmental conditions and certain conditions of the materials, change consistency and assist in the exploitation within the wells of oil and gas. The new technology will be mainly focused on pre-salt and has received about R$ 21.3 million in investments.

This initiative, as well as others, is governed by the Research, Development and Innovation (PD&I), regulated by the National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP).
