Project Summary

According to Law 12,276 / 2010, the onerous assignment is a regime of direct contracting of specific areas of petroleum of the Union for Petroleo Brasileiro S.A - Petrobras. This law granted Petrobras the right to extract up to five billion barrels of oil equivalent from non-granted areas located in the pre-salt, as detailed in the Onerous Assignment Agreement signed between the Union and Petrobras.


Considering the legal limitation on the maximum volume to be extracted in the Onerous Assignment Contract and the existence of surplus volumes to the contracted, the National Council of Energy Policy (CNPE), through CNPE Resolution 06/2019, published in the Official Gazette of the Union of 04/18/2019, authorized the ANP to hold the Round of Bids for Production Sharing for Excess Volumes to those contracted under the Onerous Assignment regime in Pre-salt areas. In the same normative act, the CNPE approved the technical and economic parameters of the offered areas. CNPE Resolution No. 08/2019, published in the Federal Official Gazette (DOU) dated 05/05/2019, altered the minimum percentages of participation in the Surplus Area of ​​the Assignment and determined that Petrobras should express its opinion on the right preferably in each of the blocks offered, within a maximum of thirty days, counted from the publication.


The following development areas will be offered in the Santos Basin, with the respective minimum participation percentages and signature bonus values:


I - in the Atapu area, 26.23% and thirteen billion, seven hundred and forty-two million reais (R$ 13,742,000,000.00);


II - in the area of ​​Búzios, 23.24% and sixty-eight billion, one hundred and ninety-four million reais (R$ 68,194,000,000.00);


III - in the area of ​​ltapu 18.15% and R$ 1,766,000,000.00 (one billion, seven hundred and sixty six million Reais); and


IV - in the area of ​​Sepia 27.28% and twenty-two billion, eight hundred and fifty-nine million reais (R$ 22,859,000,000.00).
