Round of Bids and the moment of transformation that the oil, natural gas and biofuel industry in Brazil are experiencing. The meeting was held at Anchieta Palace in Vitória.

He highlighted the recent improvements in the national energy policy, such as changes in local content and simplification of the rules in the concessions regime with the adoption of a single phase of exploration, distinct royalties for areas of new frontiers and mature basins of greater risk, reduction equity to non-operators, incentives to increase the participation of investment funds, as well as the permanent supply of areas for exploration and production. According to the director, with this new scenario, Espírito Santo should receive approximately R $ 50 billion in investments in the coming years.

It will also offer the CM-210 block, in the SC-AP3 sector in the Campos Basin, which is partially located in the State of Espírito Santo (on the border with Rio de Janeiro) and has potential for pre-salt discoveries, although the area is offered under a concession regime and outside the polygon established in Law 12,351 / 2010. The land blocks cover the municipalities of Conceição da Barra, Jaguaré, Linhares and São Mateus.

The maritime part of the Espírito Santo Basin and the Campos Basin are traditional producers of oil and natural gas in the country. The terrestrial part of the Espírito Santo Basin is classified as mature, that is, it has already been densely exploited and offers opportunities for small and medium-sized companies in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas.
