Opportunities in the Brazilian oil & gas sector

With continued discovery and development of reservoirs, Brazil’s oil & gas sector continues to be one of the world’s biggest markets.

With an average production of 2.47 million boed, Brazil has so far explored only 6% of its sedimentary basins. It is estimated that the pre-salt offshore area contains 56 billion barrels of oil. Also, discoveries in shallow waters are estimated to hold 3 billion barrels in a single well.

The Brazilian major oil & gas company has plans to invest US$ 98.4 bn until 2019, generating opportunities for British specialist suppliers. Other major IOCs are indicating that Brazil remains high on their portfolio.

Ageing assets are also generating opportunity in decommissioning and refitting. Productivity in the more mature fields is declining as remaining reserves prove increasingly challenging to recover.

Well positioned in the market, UK companies have the experience, expertise and technology to contribute to the development of the industry in Brazil.

National oil company Business Plan 2013 - 2017 (HVO BRA-18)

Petrobras’ investments in the ‘pre-salt’ oil fields off the coast of Brazil offer significant and potentially lucrative opportunities for UK companies who have developed cutting-edge goods and services in areas of deepwater reserves.

Petrobras’ investments in the ‘pre-salt’ oil fields off the coast of Brazil offer significant and potentially lucrative opportunities for UK companies who have developed cutting-edge goods and services in areas of deep-water production.

This multi-billion dollar investment by Petrobras provides opportunities for the supply of critical components, technologies, services and parts to the oil & gas and shipbuilding sectors which the Brazilian sector groups have said it will remain unviable to manufacture in Brazil, and so must be imported.

UKTI’s aim is to engage at a high-level with key players (both commercial and political), hold events to showcase UK capability, highlight opportunities to UK companies, work with UK and local companies to understand and satisfy the Brazilian Government’s local content requirements and working with UK Export Finance to provide lines of credit.
