pre-salt auction




In the early hours of today, the justice of the Amazon vetoed the pre-salt auctions but the court has just chased the veto and everything will proceed normally.

petronews – “The Federal Regional Court of the 1st Region canceled this morning the injunction that suspended the pre-salt auctions. There is great expectation at the Hotel Hyatt, in Rio de Janeiro, until the official documentation arrives and the auction is carried out. The Minister of Mines and Energy, Fernando Coelho Filho, said that the government is now just waiting for the publication of the decision to start the auction. “We hope it will be soon” he said. With the favorable decision of the TRF, the expectation is that the auction, which attracted the largest oil companies in the world to Brazil, can proceed normally”
