19 Dez Transfer Of Rights Agreement Petrobras
The rights transfer contract was signed in 2010 between state-controlled Petrobras and the Brazilian government, the first of which acquired the rights to produce up to five billion barrels in a new exploration zone in the pre-salt areas of Brazilian waters. Brazilian Energy Minister Bento Albuquerque was quoted in the publication as saying that the agreement paves the way for the government to auction off the rights to explore excess oil in the area of rights transfer. The National Energy Council announced Tuesday that the Petrobras government, as it is known, would pay $9.058 billion to end its contract dispute over the Transfer of Rights Area (TOR). The Brazilian government has agreed to pay $9.058 billion to Petréleo Brasileiro (Petrobras) as a comparison for the revision of an oil transfer contract. As part of the transfer of rights, the marketing of several Brazilian offshore fields, such as Bézios.B. Bézios, Sepia, Itapu, Sul de Lula, Sul de Sapinhoa, Norte and Sul de Berbigéo, Atapu and Norte and Sul de Sururu. The government has scheduled an auction on October 28 for the rights to extract excess oil in the TOR zone, which are divided into four separate fields, called Atapu, Buzios, Itapu e Sepia. The winning bidder must also sign the single agreement for the Bezios, Atapu and Sepia fields, as they have a reservoir that extends into adjacent areas, either under concession contracts or in unrelated areas. The individualization of production (or unitization) has implications for certain activities, such as the conclusion of .B a production customization agreement (so far, only Atapu and Sepia have been approved by the Agency), contractual obligations regarding local content, charges that were finally taken before the conclusion of the production sharing contract. In order to maintain its controlling interest in the national oil company, the Brazilian government sold the production rights for BRL 74.8 billion ($19.43 billion).
The government bought other shares in the enterprise with the receipts. In a negotiation, the winning bidder could also have a percentage of production between the date of the production sharing agreement and the effective date of the participation agreement, which is 18 months later than the end of March 2020. The amount paid by the winning bidder who signs the production-sharing agreement in compensation for Petrobras` expenses is recorded as cost oil on the day of the transfer of ownership of the asset. The solution to this problem has been published in the Portaria MME 265/2019. The winning bidder will sign a participation agreement, establish some fields and Petrobras will pay compensation. Reuters reports that the agreement also includes payments to oil-producing countries. These come from the expected revenue from field auctions as well as from the excess reserves of these fields. States will receive 3 per cent of the excess reserves and a 15 per cent share of the auction proceeds, estimated by the government at $35 billion.
Petrobras has acquired 100% of the exploration and production rights to Itapu`s excess land volume. As part of this contract, it was decided that a review of the conditions would be reviewed if Petrobras declared the fields commercially and that Petrobras would be the only operator to have 100% stakes without having rights in agriculture. For years, the two sides debated additional compensation following a dispute over the terms of the transaction, as these regions held far more than the 5 billion recoverable reserves, all areas were declared commercial before the fall in oil prices and before Petrobras` financial problems.
