The PPSA has also negotiated an agreement for the Mero field, which is in the Libra zone, the first PSA, while it is the government representative for the non-contractual zone and the management of the PSA. Oil companies operating on Brazil`s subsalt border must continue to focus on reducing the ultra-deep province`s development costs, whether or not the country ends its production-sharing experiment, Castello Branco added. The interface between PPSA and the Berous concession and assignment regime arises when there is a unification agreement between a non-contractual pre-salt zone and an area subject to one of these contracts. By the end of 2017, PPSA had signed four UAAs for the following areas: once the production sharing agreement is concluded, the contracting party will have to proceed with the closure and expropriation of contract areas, including the removal of equipment and equipment not subject to reversion, as well as the repatriation of assets. The contractor must still make reparation or reparation for the damage suffered by its activities. With regard to the Berous Assignment scheme, the ANP designs the agreement and submits it to the approval of the M. La M. and the MF, who represent the government, sign the agreement. The CNPE must authorize the revision on the basis of studies developed by the M.
As in the concession regime, the PPSA interacts with Petrobras and the ANP under the regime of convenience only in the event of unification of an open area in the pre-salt polygon. The concession contract can only be signed with companies governed by Brazilian law with their registered office and administration in Brazil that previously meet the technical, economic and legal requirements of the ANP. II prepare and present draft production sharing agreements and tender minutes in the event of tenders for approval by the Ministry of Mines and Energy; The ANP is responsible for regulating and supervising the economic activities of the oil industry. The Petroleum Law, as amended by the Production Sharing Act, lists the following responsibilities of the ANP with regard to exploration and production (E&P) activities: the contractor, under a production sharing system, assumes all risks related to exploration, evaluation, development and production activities and bears the costs and investments necessary for the execution of the PPE. When there is a commercial discovery and begins production, the contractor is entitled to recover these costs in kind, with the exception of payments of State revenue. These costs are approved by the Operating Committee and recognized by the PPSA Contract Manager. The Brazilian PSA is limited to 35 years and divided into two phases: exploration, which includes the assessment of the eventual discovery of oil to determine its commercialization, and production, which includes exploitation activities. Unlike the contracts of the concession system, PSA does not have different conditions for each phase.
To extend the production phase, it is therefore necessary that the mandated consortium reduce the use phase. . . .
