Brazil Oil Bidding Points to Future Auction Success

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Brazil's mines and energy minister said the positive results of Thursday's round of bidding for the country's offshore oil blocks point to successful auctions later this year of the so-called Transfer of Rights area and pre-salt oil find.

Minister Bento Albuquerque said that Thursday's auction surpassed expectations, following the conclusion of bidding.

Oil regulator ANP said that the auction would result in cumulative bonus payments of 8.9 billion reais ($2.16 billion).
