Oil & Gas Market


Looking to engage with Brazil’s Oil & Gas Sector?

Petrobras has unveiled ambitious 5 year plans to boost production, investing $84.1bn between 2019-2023. The company is also looking to raise some $26.9bn through asset sales and partnerships.

Meanwhile, Brazil is experiencing a transition period in the mid and downstream segments, largely triggered by digital transformation and changes in the business environment.

For supply chain businesses looking to address Brazil’s oil & gas sector, there are some excellent opportunities around these key themes of increased investment and technological change.

Two key events to plan for in September 2019:

  • SPE Offshore Europe Expo (3rd – 6th Sept) in Aberdeen. There is always a Brazilian presence at the show. Details are currently being finalised but there is usually a delegation of Brazilian businesses looking for partners, organised by DBT.
  • Rio Pipeline Conference (3rd-5th Sept) in Rio de Janeiro.
