Energy Policy in Brazil: What’s Next for Upstream, Refining and LNG?


Event Summary This event has passed.

Brazil has revamped energy policy under the Temer administration, opening opportunities to private companies in the oil & gas and power sectors and reducing the role of state oil company Petrobras. The oil licensing agency ANP held its fourth pre-salt bid round on June 7 and Petrobras is looking to divest assets in refining, pipelines, and LNG. Will Brazil meet its oil and gas production targets and sustainably develop the vast pre-salt reserves? How can the country diversify its electricity matrix? Will the current energy policy priorities be sustained under the next administration? Join us for a panel discussion on the recent oil licensing rounds, opportunities for private investment in the oil, gas and power sectors, and the outlook for energy policy next year.
