Brazil Licensing | Latest bid round triggers rush for Pelotas Basin acreage

December 15, 2023

The ANP held its latest bid rounds on 13th December 2023, the 4th Concession Permanent Offer and the 2nd Production Sharing Contract (PSC) Permanent Offer. The sector showed a healthy interest in the concession round, with some of the industry’s big names (Chevron, CNOOC Ltd, Petrobras, Shell) taking the opportunity to build exposure to the frontier, but highly prospective Pelotas Basin in the south of the country.
