Oil: government grants 18 areas at auction

On Friday (4), the Brazilian government held another oil auction and granted 18 areas for the exploration and production of the commodity. The event, which did not have the participation of Petrobras, received offers and bids from seven companies and raised R$ 56.7 million, making minimum investments of R$ 160.6 million. It was the second auction held following the model of the National Agency of Oil, Gas and Biofuels (ANP) of permanent offer, inaugurated in 2019.

The Juruá field, in the Amazon, was the only area targeted by dispute, being sold to Eneva, the biggest winner of the auction with 8 areas. Another oil company present was Shell, winner of a block in the ultra-deep waters of the Campos Basin for R$ 12 million.

In the permanent supply model, the blocks are permanently available for expressions of interest to oil companies. With accumulated demonstrations, the ANP holds the auction with the sectors that aroused interest.

The companies included in the event were Shell, Enauta, Eneva, Imetame, Petrorecôncavo, Petroborn and ENP Ecosystems.
