Over the past decade, upstream activities have increased significantly in Brazil. However, companies that succeed in finding oil or gas are faced with a myriad of questions to consider. Can they export their hydrocarbons? Do they have the necessary infrastructure in place? Do they need to build this? If so, how? Can they refine their products in Brazil? What is the market for those products? What regulation is involved? How can they reach the final consumer in the petrol station? This practical new handbook aims to provide the answers to each of these questions.
A companion to Brazilian Upstream Oil and Gas, the book features chapters by highly respected Brazilian and international professionals, including experts from Baker Botts, Pinheiro Neto, Vieira Rezende, Veirano Advogados and Machado Meyer.
Their insights offer reliable guidance for international investors - and the lawyers assisting them - when considering investment in Brazil, particularly for those who are unfamiliar with the country’s legal system. In combination with Brazilian Upstream Oil and Gas, this book will provide essential knowledge for any reader in understanding petroleum law and regulation in Brazil, from the field to the petrol station.
