Two sources told Reuters that Norwegian company BW Offshore and DBO Energy are among those interested in Petrobras' dolphin oil field cluster.
The field has an average daily production of 15,000 barrels of oil, 750,000 cubic meters of gas and is among the largest production assets petrobras currently has in the block. According to the sources, the binding offers for the mature set of oil fields, located on the coast of Espírito Santo, should take place in early September.
According to the DBO website, the company, which has its headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, has extensive experience in the operation of mature assets in Brazil and the North Sea. Meanwhile, BW Offshore became an operator in Brazil in 2019 after regulators approved the $115 million purchase of Petrobras' Maromba offshore field.
