Pre-salt should render some R $50 bi to Rio de Janeiro

The six areas sold in two auctions of the pre-salt, performed on 27 October day, must generate to Rio de Janeiro some R $50 billion in royalties from production, according to the Federation of industries of the State of Rio de Janeiro (Firjan). To the national agency of petroleum, Natural gas and Biofuels (ANP) this fundraiser can be broader, and can generate R $65 billion with the areas already contracted and those that will be auctioned until 2019, which can boost the economy of the State of Rio de Janeiro in the coming years.

The contracts for the exploration of the pre-salt layer are 35 years and to start production, companies are starting to pay royalties and the higher is the price of oil, higher will be the value received by the State. Without doubt, this could be a new era for Rio de Janeiro, with generation of new investment and job opportunities.
