Rio de Janeiro, November 28, 2016 – Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras, further to the Material Fact disclosed on November 22, 2016, informs that the amount of US$ 1.25 billion received upon the closing of the sale of the stake in the exploration block BM-S-8 to Statoil Brasil Óleo e Gás LTDA is being used in full for the early liquidation of part of the financing contract between Transportadora Associada de Gás S.A.
