[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]The Petroleum in Brazil is starting today a historic milestone through the worst financial crisis in Brazil of all time, the resumption of the fossil fuel sector. At this present moment at the Windsor Hotel (RJ), the 14th round of bidding for an exploratory oil block is taking place. There are a multitude of entrepreneurs representing 32 large operating companies. On the 21st of last week there were already people from the sector talking to each other and making pre-agreements about the auctions.

Of all the companies that are participating, 8 eight of them do not have any type of enterprise in Brazil and 18 are from abroad. Among the big ones in the fight are Petrobras, Total, BP and Shell, but these are not very interested in smaller blocks, these will be more disputed by small and medium-sized companies.
