Pandemic causes ANP to extend deadlines for P&G industry

The board of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) approved last Thursday (6) a resolution establishing the extension of deadlines and procedures to be adopted by several companies in the oil and gas sector.

The progress of the pandemic throughout the country was the decisive factor for the extension, which will affect the regulated agents that operate in the activities of exploration and production of oil and natural gas.

"Due to the worsening of the pandemic, the ANP identified the need to maintain other conditions of Resolution 816, which allow the continuity of oil exploration and production activities. Therefore, another part of the provisions of Resolution 816 will be included in Resolution 836, which is valid until 12/31/2021," the ANP said in a statement.
