Oil: small and medium-sized enterprises need encouragement to resume activities and create jobs

Since the oil crisis broke out in Brazil, driven by the car wash operation investigations and the low price of the barrel in all continents, we are seeing mass layoffs in one of the areas that most employed in recent years: the oil in offshore areas as onshore.

The signs of recovery began to take the air in 2017, not only in Brazil, but in the world, when forces were assembled to reduce global supply in order to boost the price of a barrel of "black gold", as the case of the agreement of Oil producing countries (Opec).

In Brazil, we're still in crisis, after all the prices of the commodity are erratic, go up and down, but have not yet achieved the high expected. However, the resumption of the oil and gas area can be right in front of our eyes: small and medium-sized enterprises in the area.

This argument can be sustained because the National Agency of petroleum, Natural gas and biofuels (ANP), in your last auction, have turned to small and medium-sized enterprises, in which offered nine areas in the States of Espírito Santo, Rio Grande do Norte and Bahia.

At the auction of accumulations of mature ANP, eight companies made offers, with six winners. The biggest signing bonus was R $5,710,000.00, offered by the brazilian company, with headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, Newo, Itaparica, area in the basin of the Recôncavo.

According to the Agency, there was no local content requirement because these areas he's naturally high, getting around 90%. This suggests that, in brief, more jobs will be generated, and a good part of them by small and medium-sized enterprises which, so far, are partially stopped "selling lunch to buy dinner."

The reflection will be for the brazilian population, as well as for the financial crisis, only time will tell. However, expectations are high and positive, after all the selected areas offer opportunities and enable the continuity of activities in these areas, a fact which has important socio-economic role.
