About Brazil

The Brazilian Oil & Gas market has tremendous potential. Proven reserves are among the largest worldwide. The bidding rounds which restarted at the end of 2017, and are ongoing for offshore fields, attracted interest of international oil majors and independents. The upcoming edition of Rio Oil & Gas, Latin America’s leading O&G event, is particularly important as key projects by Petrobras and IOCs in the country are getting traction. Major contracts are expected to be awarded in the coming months, as the Brazilian company forges ahead with its US84.1 billion investment plan for 2019-23.

Brazil’s oil and gas opportunities are no longer limited to Petrobras’ pre-salt plans. Oil majors such as Equinor, Shell and Total are actively engaged in field development projects, with contracting activity already underway.

Holland Pavilion

IRO is looking at the possibilities to participate with a Holland Pavilion at Rio Oil  & Gas 2020. In order to see if this is feasible, we have set out a poll amongst our members in which we ask them if they are interested in participation. On the basis of the results, IRO will decide whether or not the realisation of a Holland Pavilion is possible.

More info will follow in due course.
