OGX Petróleo e Gás Participações S.A. (OGX)), received the Installation License to begin activities related to the development of oil production in BM-C-39 and BM-C-40 blocks, in the Campos Basin.

The transaction is subject to approval from Brazil’s National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP) and the Brazilian Council for Economic Defense (CADE).
