The 14th round of the oil exploration blocks yielded an extra R$ 3.84 billion

Petrobras and ExxoMobil purchased almost 90% from the Campos Basin and 17 companies acquired the remainder. The jobs and investments back!

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]At the 14th of exploration blocks round of oil yielded an extra R$ 3.84 billion, according to the ANP (National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels). In total, 17 companies acquire exploration sites, of which 7 companies are from abroad. But two companies stood out in this bargain, Petrobras and ExxoMobil, which were responsible for almost 90% of the closings, that is, R$ 3.6 billion in business, THAT'S IN THE CAMPOS BASIN!!!!

The ANP also adds that this was the most profitable oil auction in history, due to the favorable exchange rate difference. In the auction held in 2015, only 121 million in bonuses were collected. In 2013, the record was R$ 2.8 billion which has now been beaten on the 27th (Wednesday).

In this round, 287 blocks were offered in 9 oil basins across Brazil, with a sum of area that comes close to 123 thousand km². However, only 37 of them were acquired and most received only one proposal. The Campos Basin was the most disputed.

Campos Basin back in the game

As Click Petróleo e Gás mentioned earlier, Campos was the Basin of greatest interest, so much so that it had the greatest revenue and interest from companies. Petrobras and Monstra ExxoMobil acquired practically everything and now holds the concessions for these exploration fields. It turns out that the revitalization of mature fields and the discovery of pre-salt in this region are projects that are worth gold. Pedro Parente himself said that he already had valuable data about the Campos Basin, but he did not disclose it to the media for strategic reasons.
