We have different types of operations in South America: Oil and gas exploration and production, distribution and marketing of products and services.


We are an integrated energy company, focusing on oil and gas, which evolves with society, generates high value, and has unique technical expertise. On the 2021 horizon, we will prioritize oil exploration and production projects in Brazil, with emphasis on deep waters.

We will seek to grow in a sustainable, realistic manner, guided by ethics, safe operations, and predictability and profitability, pursuant to the highest international industry standards.

We have been operating in Bolivia since 1996. We currently have hydrocarbon exploration and production operations in the departments of Tarija (Campos de San Alberto, Itaú, and Sábalo fields, with gas production), Santa Cruz (Cedro Exploratory Area), and Chuquisaca (Monteagudo Field).

We arrived at the country under the agreements signed between the governments of Bolivia and Brazil, with the common goal of enabling energy integration between the two countries.

We signed the natural gas purchase and sale agreement with Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) to supply gas until the year 2019. The agreement included hydrocarbon exploration and production in Bolivia by Petrobras in partnership with YPFB.

We have exploration projects in the areas called San Telmo, Sunchal, and Astillero, in the Tarija department.

Transport and compression

We work in the gas transport and compression chain, holding 21 percent equity stakes in the Rio Grande Compression Plant.

We concluded, in January 2017, the sale of 100 percent of Petrobras Chile Distribuición Ltda (PCD) to the Southern Cross Group. The transaction included the licensing of the Petrobras and Lubrax brands.

A privately held company, the Southern Cross Group has $2.9 billion in assets under management and focuses on investments in Latin America in companies operating in the industrial, service, logistics, and consumer products industries.

To operate the assets acquired from Petrobras in Chile, Southern Cross created Esmax, a company that acts as a Petrobras licensee in the fuel and lubricant distribution segments.

The sale, carried out through a competitive process, is an integral part of the company’s partnership and divestment plan and is in line with our Strategic Plan, which provides for the optimization of our business portfolio.

Our internationalization process began in Colombia, in 1972. We currently have significant assets and an ambitious investment projection, showing our interest and commitment to the country. We have operations in the exploration segment and in fuels and lubricant trade and distribution in all regions of the country.

Exploration in Colombia

We operate through our offshore assets, a segment in which our expertise is recognized around the world, and hold stakes in an onshore block in the Tolima region with potential for conventional and unconventional hydrocarbons.

We are currently the operators of the Tayrona Block, where, together with our strategic partners Ecopetrol, Repsol and Statoil, we recently confirmed the existence of a gas accumulation in the Orca-1 Well. This was the first discovery made in deep waters in the Colombian Caribbean.

Petrobras Fuel and Lubricants Stations

We offer fuel and lubricant distribution services through a network of 115 stations services at which we have ten Spacio 1 convenience stores, nine mini markets and two kiosks. Our lubricant line is prepared pursuant to the highest international oil industry standards to meet the needs and demands of individual and corporate consumers.

We started operating in Paraguay in April 2006, working in the fuel and lubricant distribution and trade segment, both in retail and on the commercial market. The products we offer include gasoline, diesel, ethanol, aviation products, fuel oil, asphalt, lubricants and LPG.

Paraguay's geographical position is strategic because of its proximity to Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia. The improvements that have been made in the country's logistics represent major growth potential with our company's current assets in the Southern Cone.

Petrobras Service Stations
We have 180 services stations throughout Paraguay, 73 of which with convenience stores (Spacio 1 and Mini Market). We also trade LPG and aviation products at the Asunción and Ciudad Del Este airports.

The operations, which began in the natural gas industry in the country, today include lubricant and fuel distribution and trade.

We have had operations in Uruguay since 2004, when we partnered with the National Administration of Fuels, Alcohol, and Portland (Ancap) to distribute natural gas within the country.

Today, we are responsible for distributing natural gas to the capital city and to the interior of the country as well as for service stations throughout Uruguay, with the supply of our products.

To Petrobras, operating in Uruguay is important for the energetic integration of the Southern Cone.


In 2004, we took over the control of the Uruguayan Conecta gas distributor by acquiring 55 percent of the equity stakes in it, which had previously belonged to two companies of a Spanish group. The distributor our company operates holds exclusive rights to distribute, over pipelines, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and gas manufactured in the interior of Uruguay, outside of the capital city, Montevideo.

In 2006, our operations in Uruguay were enhanced in the natural gas sector, when we completed the acquisition of 66 percent of the equity stakes of Gaseba Uruguay S.A., currently MontevideoGas. The company is a natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and gas pipeline distribution utility and uses pipelines to supply these products in the Uruguayan capital city.

On March 31, 2011, Petrobras Uruguay acquired the remaining 34 percent of the stakes in Distribuidora de Gas S.A. Montevideo (MontevideoGas) from Pan American Energy Iberica S.L., going on to hold 100 percent of its shares. This concession, valid through 2024, covers the city of Montevideo.

Additionally, in 2006, the company enhanced its presence in Uruguay by incorporating fuel distribution and trade operations, which today include fuel stations nationwide, as well as facilities to trade jet fuel, maritime products, lubricants, and fertilizers.

We have explored and produced oil and gas in Venezuela since 2003.

In Venezuela, we hold non-operating stakes, in partnership with Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA) and other companies, in four joint ventures that operate onshore production fields in the country.

We have the support of the specialized team operating out of the Petrobras Venezuela subsidiary in our projects and exploration and production efforts across the world. This partnership also extends to the joint ventures and other Petrobras system companies.

With a relevant asset portfolio, we have secured global recognition due to the cutting-edge technology developed for use in deep and ultra-deep water in the Gulf of Mexico.


We have explored and produced in the U.S. since 1987, when we acquired stakes in eight blocks in the American sector of the Gulf of Mexico. We signed-on partnerships with a few of the world's biggest oil companies, and, in the past few years, we have increased our stakes in oil exploration and production in American waters.

We began our activities in Mexico in 2003 as operators in natural gas exploration and production service contracts in the Cuervito and Fronterizo blocks (onshore), located in the Burgos Basin, north of Mexico.

The two integral service-rendering agreements include exploration and production activities, as well projects involved in infrastructure construction and maintenance.

Additionally, we had a scientific and technological collaboration agreement in effect with Pemex through 2014; negitiations are currently underway for its renewal.

With major development prospects for our business, we signed a cooperation agreement in 2004, when Petrobras’ inaugurated its office in China.

In 2005, the memorandum of understandings with the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) aimed to develop joint business projects with our company in integrated activities in the industry, involving refining, pipelines, and oil resource exploration and production, onshore and offshore, in Brazil, in China or in other regions of the world.

We have been in Japan since 2000, when we opened of our representation office in Tokyo, a move that contributed to Petrobras' growth by winning over Japanese investment capital for new partnerships. With this representation in Japan, we have been able to secure significant funding for development projects in Brazil.

In 2005, we started a partnership when we created BJE (Brazil-Japan Ethanol), a joint venture between Petrobras and Nippon Alcohol Hambai.

We entered the Japanese refining sector in 2008, after acquiring stakes in Nansei Sekiyu Kabushiki Kaisha (NSS). We currently own 100% of Nansei, which is located on the island of Okinawa, the southernmost province of the Japanese archipelago. Okinawa is located in the central region of Southeast Asia.

We have been making changes to Nansei Sekiyu’s business and operation model since March 2015, closing the asset’s refining activities. From April 2016, we will operate as a marine terminal in Okinawa. Services include the receipt of goods by sea, storage, handling, and delivery to Japanese distribution companies.

Our work in Japan is aligned with the best environmental responsibility practices, showing commitment to the people of Okinawa, respect for the Nansei workforce, and compliance with local regulations.
