Altogether there will be 740 blocks, 497 on land and 243 at sea. The offer also has three areas with marginal accumulations onshore.
Included in the auction are blocks not purchased in the 16th sixth round – opportunities in ultra-deep waters in Campos, Camamu-Almada and Jacuípe, and deep in Espírito Santo, Pernambuco-Paraíba.
EnP focusing on energy transition
EnP has shown interest in energy transition and its project is to help create an investment fund for energy transition projects in Brazil, for this purpose the company aims to be able to finance the development of ecosystem production from a structure that can be combined with other financial solutions.
Power generation in agribusiness may be one of the first paths. Recently, EnP signed an agreement with Datagro to develop solutions to integrate the oil and gas industry with biofuels, with emphasis on ethanol, biodiesel, biogas and sustainable aviation fuels.
