Rio de Janeiro - Na 16ª Rodada de Licitação de Blocos sob o regime de concessão, realizada hoje pela Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis (ANP), no Rio de Janeiro, a Shell Brasil arrematou dois blocos de exploração na bacia de Campos, em consórcio com as empresas Chevron (35%) e QPI Brasil (25%). A Shell Brasil será operadora dos blocos e pagará R$506 milhões em bônus de assinatura, correspondente a sua participação nos ativos.
“O leilão de hoje nos deu a oportunidade de demonstrar mais uma vez nosso compromisso com o Brasil, origem de cerca de 10% de nossa produção global de óleo e gás. Nossas novas áreas se somam a um portfólio já robusto no país, onde somos operadores desde 2000”, afirmou o presidente da Shell Brasil, André Araujo. “O Brasil tem uma grande importância para a Shell”.
“O resultado do leilão de hoje representa uma boa oportunidade de ampliarmos nossa competitividade e nossos fluxo de caixa e retorno nas próximas décadas. Gostaria de agradecer nossos parceiros, Qatar Petróleo e Chevron, por esse resultado”, disse Wael Sawan, diretor de Upstream do Grupo Shell.
Com as áreas arrematadas no leilão de hoje, a Shell Brasil ampliou sua área total de atuação para aproximadamente 9,9 milhões de quilômetros quadrados em 21 blocos exploratórios, 4 campos em desenvolvimento da produção e 11 campos em produção. A empresa – que opera há 106 anos no Brasil - foi a primeira multinacional de petróleo a produzir em 2003 em escala comercial no país após o fim do monopólio estatal.
Para o Grupo Shell, as atividades de exploração e desenvolvimento têm se mostrado promissoras no Brasil, Estados Unidos, México, Nigéria, Malásia, Mauritânia e no Mar Negro ocidental.

Shell expands Brazil portfolio in ANP’s Round 16
In today’s 16th concession deep-water bid round hosted by the Brazilian National Petroleum Agency (ANP), in Rio de Janeiro, Shell Brasil Petróleo Ltda (Shell), a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, won two exploration blocks in the Campos basin with consortium partners Chevron (35%) and QPI Brasil (25%). Shell will be the operator for these blocks and will pay its share of the total signing bonus, equating to approximately R$ 506 million (USD$ 124 million).
“Today´s bid round further demonstrates our continued investment in Brazil, which is home to approximately 10% of Shell’s global oil & gas production. The newly acquired acreage adds to our robust portfolio in Brazil, where we have been working as an operator since the early 2000s,” said André Araujo, Shell Brasil Country Chair.
“Brazil has become a heartland for Shell. The result of today’s bid round presents an exciting opportunity to extend our competitive development funnel, which is designed to deliver strong cash flow and returns for decades to come,” said Wael Sawan, Shell’s Upstream Director. “I would like to thank our partners, Qatar Petroleum and Chevron, for this result,” he added.
With the addition of these new blocks, Shell has 2.6 million net acres with 21 exploration blocks, 4 development fields and 11 production fields in Brazil.
With a 106-year history in Brazil, Shell was the first IOC to produce oil in a commercial scale after the state monopoly eased in the late 1990s. Shell’s global deep-water business has a strong funnel of development and exploration opportunities in Brazil, the US, Mexico, Nigeria, Malaysia, Mauritania, and the Western Black Sea.
Shell’s working interest in these blocks is 40%, with Chevron (35%) and QPI Brasil (25%).
