Brazil Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Guide

Summary

Brazil offers regular licensing rounds as defined in the 2017-2021 bidding schedule. Each year a concession round and a production sharing agreement round are held, in addition to the open acreage round. In Q3 2019, Brazil will hold the Transfer of Rights Round in which four fields, initially assigned to Petrobras (under concession agreements), will be offered under production sharing agreements. Brazil’s Bolsonaro administration continues to try to get more international investment in both the Pre-Salt polygon and more mature areas. Given current financial problems linked to its high debt, in the coming years Petrobras will selectively choose the blocks that it wants to operate and will divest of its stakes in various mature fields, which are no longer essential to its business plan.
