There are institutions that welcome this agreement and others that do not, the fact that the technology that only Petrobras has will now be delivered to the private sector.
[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]Petrobras and Shell have just signed a mutual collaboration agreement for the purpose of sharing technology, technical and operational data. According to the companies, this agreement is only valid for the same assets in which the 2 carry out the same activities.
The paperwork was signed in Holland by its presidents Pedro Parente and Ben Van (Petrobras and Shell respectively). According to them, this agreement aims to reduce costs in offshore activities, logistical transport and aviation.
In this signed agreement, it is foreseen the creation of a commission with representatives of the 2 companies, in order to inspect and improve the operational processes. The companies divide the consortium operations as exploration partners in 50% into 10 assets.
For practical purposes, Petrobras is giving access to technological secrets that only Petrobras has to explore the pre-salt layer. This technology was developed on the island of Fundão, at UFRJ.
In the view of the militants, the companies are already partnerships in several consortia and there would be no need for this agreement, this would be another maneuver to hand over the state to the private sector. In their thinking, if other companies have access to the same technology as Petrobras, there would be no need for them to have a stake in assets that demand this type of technological device.
