Petrobras has finalised the sale of its entire participation in two onshore production fields - Ponta do Mel and Redonda - located in the Potiguar Basin, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, to Central Resources do Brasil Producao de Petroleo Ltda.

After the fulfilling of all precedent conditions and considering other further conditions subsequently agreed, the operation was concluded totaling US$ 7.2 million for Petrobras, with payment to be made over 18 months.

This transaction is in line with the portfolio optimization strategy and the improvement of the company’s capital allocation, increasingly concentrating its resources in deep and ultra-deep waters, where Petrobras has demonstrated great competitive edge over the years.
