Tauil & Chequer Legal Update

On April 20, 2015, the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels - ANP publicized the 23 sectors that are being studied in order to define the blocks to be offered at Bid Round 13, expected to take place in the last quarter of this year. The sectors are distributed among the sedimentary basins of Amazonas, Camamu-Almada, Campos, Espírito Santo (onshore), Jacuípe, Parnaíba, Pelotas, Potiguar (onshore), Recôncavo and Sergipe-Alagoas (offshore).

Notwithstanding the announcement of the sectors under analysis, there is no guarantee that blocks in all basins indicated by ANP so far will be offered and nothing prevents the analysis of sectors that have not been mentioned at this time. This latest communication from ANP has been released for information purposes only. The final list to be published will be the only one to have official definitive value.

According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy – MME, the specific schedule for Bid Round 13 will be made public later this month.

Details about the sectors and a descriptive map are available on ANP's website.
