An event for those interested in accessing or extending their reach in the Brazilian energy market.
Brazil has the second largest oil reserves in Latin America after Venezuela. Despite the global downturn in oil and gas, it is expected that the Brazilian industry will pick up in 2017.
The Brazilian Government announced that it will hold three oil and gas bidding rounds for new licences including in the pre-salt area. With recent changes in sole operator status rules, an increased level of foreign investment is expected in these rounds. Petrobras will invest US$ 75 billion until 2020, and Shell recently announced that it will invest in excess of US$ 10 billion over the next five years in their Brazilian existing portfolio. Statoil and Total are two other oil companies that recently announced that they will develop new projects in Brazil.
This presents huge opportunities for UK suppliers in Marine and Offshore Construction & Maintenance, Subsea, EOR and Decommissioning. On the regulation side, the Brazilian Government and Petrobras have recognised the need to relax the local content rules for Oil and Gas which will help UK suppliers to export to Brazil.
Partnering with a local organisation offers tangible benefits to UK companies, assisting a quicker route to market with a potentially lower level of investment.
