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.

The Rio Neuquen and Colpa Caranda assets have strategic value to Petrobras.

This operation, conducted through a competitive process, is an important part of the 2015-2016 Divestment Plan.

Below is a list of digital environments and web pages that are still active for relationships with investors, customers, suppliers, and other audiences until they have been completely migrated to Pampa Energía.

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. Currently, we have operations in the exploration segment and in fuels and lubricant trade and distribution in several 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 116 stations services. 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.

Petrobras Service Stations
We have 180 services stations throughout Paraguay. 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.


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.

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.

Strategic market for opening new opportunities.


Our Representation Office in Beijing was established in 2004 with the mission of supporting oil sales to China, especially heavy oil lifted from the Campos Basin, and to operationalize the agreements with Chinese state-owned enterprises, with the prospect of opening up new markets in Asia. In 2015, the commercial support assignments were transferred to the Singapore office.
Since then, the Beijing office has been responsible for the Finance and Investor Relations area and, today, it focuses on i) providing support for the partnership and divestments program; (ii) providing support for financial cooperation with Chinese banks and financial institutions; (iii) investor relations; (iv) providing support for other company activities in China, and (v) business development with other Asian partners.
Our performance in the country reflects the expansion of relations with Chinese companies in recent years. China is already the main market for our exports and the medium oils lifted from the pre-salt already account for the greater part of this trade. Banks and local financial institutions are important lenders, and Chinese companies are partners in exploring oil fields in Brazil, in the context of NPA auctions, and are among our suppliers.
