But what is the importance of these bidding rounds?
One of the great highlights of this year's bidding marathon is that foreign companies will also be able to fight for exploratory blocks, which total 287 in 29 regions and 9 basins. The sum of all the auctioned areas reach an incredible 122,622.40 square kilometers. Of these blocks, there will be 110 blocks offshore and 177 on land. The basins explored will be Campos, Espírito Santo, Santos, Sergipe-Alagoas, Paraná, Parnaíba, Potiguar and Recôncavo. Other big news will be that small, medium and large companies will also participate. As there are 177 blocks on land, you will not necessarily need CBSP and HUET courses to work in the oil sector, for example.
