Brazil's state-controlled oil company Petrobras sold stakes in a set of oilfields known as Polo Macau, located in the country's Potiguar Basin, to SPE 3R Petroleum for $191.1 million, the company said on Friday.

Petrobras, or Petróleo Brasileiro SA, said the fields - both onshore and offshore - are already under production. The company also said it has started the sale process of stakes it has in 11 mature offshore oilfields in the Campos Basin, a set of assets known as Polo Garoupa.
