The goodwill of the oil surplus was 170.58%, the collection with signing bonus was R $ 6.82 billion and the minimum exploration investment commitments were in the order of R $ 1 billion.
In the bids under the production sharing regime, the winning companies are those that offer the Brazilian State, from a minimum percentage fixed in the bid, the largest portion of oil and natural gas produced (ie the largest portion of surplus in oil). The signature bonuses, also determined in the edict, are fixed. It is estimated that the rounds held in 2017 and 2018 (including concession and share) generate around R $ 448 billion in investments and R $ 1.7 trillion in taxes.
