The five blocks were acquired on the 11th Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis (ANP) bidding round by the consortium operated by Total (40%), in partnership with Petrobras (30%) and BP Energy do Brasil LTDA (30%).


With this agreement and according to the joint operating agreement, Petrobras intends to increase its stake to up to 70%, depending on the preemptive right of BP, also part of the consortium.


The closing of the proposed transaction is subject to the regulatory agencies’ approval.
