Brazil has announced the rules for an auction of oil drilling rights worth US$ 26 B, setting the stage for Latin America’s top crude producer to become an even bigger player in the global market. The auction, scheduled for November 6, paves the way for foreign explorers like Exxon Mobil Corp and Royal Dutch Shell Plc to unlock Brazil’s vast deepwater oil reserves, which are estimated to hold enough crude to meet the entire world’s demand for almost six months. The announcement is a sign that Brazil is finally poised to develop the region as the government moves toward resolving a years-long dispute with state-controlled oil producer Petrobras over payments related to the pre-salt. Exxon and Shell have expressed interest in the group of deep-water fields that could hold as many as 15bn barrels of oil.
