The six blocks in the agreements are: FZA-M-57, FZA-M-59, FZA-M-86, FZA-M-88, FZA-M-125 and FZA-M-127, which were acquired by the consortia in the eleventh bidding round of blocks of the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), which occurred in 2013.
Blocks FZA-M-57, FZA-M-86, FZA-M-88, FZA-M-125 and FZA-M-127 are owned by Petrobras with 30%, Total with 40% and BP holding 30%.
Petrobras had already signed an agreement to assume the operation and the totality of Total’s stakes in these contracts in September last year. The FZA-M-59 block is owned by a consortium of Petrobras, with a 30% stake and operator, and BP with 70%.
The completion of the transfer between Petrobras and BP is still subject to regulatory approvals.
