In early October, the Brazilian Congress voted overwhelmingly to overhaul regulations for Brazil’s oil and gas industry, reversing changes that had been put in place during the Lula government. The new law pertains to the country’s deep sea Pre-Salt fields and lifts restrictions on companies other than Petrobras as operator, as well as the minimum 30 percent stake in all projects previously ascribed to the state firm. Debate continues to swirl in Brazil around the critical topic of local content requirements for the nation’s oil and gas sector. There has been a great deal of conversation surrounding the possible restructuring of requirements for local content in oil projects and how to best manage it for bid rounds in 2017.

Join us for a webinar presentation featuring Ricardo Sennes, Partner Director at the Brazilian public policy and governmental relations advisory firm Prospectiva. Dr. Sennes will present an overview of the regulatory changes announced for Brazil’s oil and gas industry. He will also offer insights on the current political and economic landscape and discuss what the new policies and regulations signify for investment across the country’s entire oil and gas supply chain. Dr. Sennes is an authority on political and economic analysis in Brazil and has closely followed developments in the nation’s oil and gas industry.

The webinar will be held Tuesday, November 29 at 10:00am San Diego (4:00 pm Rio de Janeiro; GMT/UTC – 8 hours).  Sennes’ formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
