Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras clarifies, in relation to the note published today, by columnist Ancelmo Góis, in O Globo, that the information regarding the sale project of Pampo and Enchova Clusters is not correct, especially as to the reasons that led the company to carry out a new round of proposals and to the order of classification of the participants in the previous phases of the process.
