The Brazilian National Council of Energy Policy (CNPE) has confirmed Bid Round 13; the preliminary request for proposal will most likely be disclosed later this week. The CNPE’s decision confirmed most of the information that had already been disclosed by Brazil Petroleum Agency, with only a few changes being made. Among these changes are that three onshore blocks were excluded and 11 inactive areas with marginal accumulations in the Recôncavo, Tucano Sul, Paraná, Barreirinhas, Potiguar and Espírito Santo basins were added.

More information about Bid Round 13 is available on ANP's website.
