Petrobras Considers Selling Presalt Areas | Exploration & Production | Pre-Salt Oil | Scoop.it
Petrobras is considering including fields from its fastest-growing deepwater oil region in a divestment plan to raise money for expenditures and debt payments, six people with knowledge of the proposal said.The move would mark a shift from economic nationalism to pragmatism at a time of low oil prices, ratings downgrades and difficult access to credit. If any deals materialize, they would be the first time Petrobras reduces exposure to the so-called presalt region it heralded as the world’s next oil frontier nearly a decade ago.

Guido Mantega resigned from his position as member and Chairman of Petrobras Board of Directors

Guido Mantega resigned from his position as member and Chairman of Petrobras Board of Directors | Pre-Salt Oil | Scoop.it
Alexandre Pépin's insight:

He's replaced by the former BNDES presidents. Now with the CEO (former BdoB president) it makes two bankers in the head of the state-run oil major. If Mantega was the former minister of economy that was unable to protect Brasil from the current crisis, his replacement seems to be following the same line of thoughts, which probably means that nothing will change.
