In its 9th edition, Macaé has the Brasil Offshore fair as the last front line in the fight against economic resection that hangs over the city
Macaé has undeniably always been identified as a reference in oil and gas activities in Brazil, above all in the offshore sector. Today, with the launch of the Lava Jato operations that hit Petrobras, which in turn has one of its main bases of operations in the municipality, now suffers because its main source of income is at risk of disappearing. You can check the reason in the article that says that 80% of offshore activities will be transferred to Porto do Açú.
The Brasil Offshore fair, which will be in its 9th edition in the city from June 20th to 23rd, has always been a symbol of innovation and technology, and it really is what it does and motivates companies, mainly multinationals, to invest in the city, exposing their products, negotiating partnerships with other companies and, consequently, creating jobs in the sector or indirectly.
At Avant Premiére, the fair's pre-launch event, which brought together the largest oil companies in the world, in which we participated and you can check by accessing here, the multinationals themselves said that abroad, there is a lot of talk about Macaé as the main goal and objective for new installations and development, just needing to overcome some political, exhaustive and operational adversities that Brazilian legislation imposes on them. In their opinion, the main villain for these obstacles has a very specific name: Local Content (in another article I will explain what it is and how it affects the economy and job creation in the country).
Good dear reader, the challenge is launched and the cards are on the table. At this point, everything is very delicate and detailed.
