The ANP approved, in the beginning of September, five more expressions of interest presented by operators for the extension of exploratory deadlines due to the covid-19 pandemic. Petrobras, ExxonMobil and BP got more time to analyze their projects due to the pandemic.
The possibility of extension, which applies both to the First Exploratory Period (PEM) and to the Discovery Assessment Plan (PAD), is provided for in ANP Resolution No. 815 / 2020.
