According to the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), Brazil’s oil production increased by 7.8% in 2019 to reach 1.018 Gbl (2.789 mb/d), including 634 mbl in pre-salt areas. Total gas production also increased significantly during 2019 (+9.5%).

In November 2019, international oil companies showed no interest in the Brazilian four blocks auction with total reserves estimated of 20 Gbl. Petrobras obtained a 90% participation in the block, whereas China’s CNOOC and CNODC shared the remaining 10%. Petrobras was the sole company to bid for the Itapu block. Two of the four blocks received no offer and will be sold in 2020.
