Brazilian oil and gas regulator approves Atapu and Sépia unitisation agreements
he Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) approved the Unitisation Agreements (UA) related with the Atapu and Sépia accumulations. These had been submitted by the BM-S-11A and BM-S-24 consortia, respectively, along with Petrobras, for the Transfer of Rights area (ToR) and Pré-Sal Petróleo S.A. (PPSA) for Atapu open area.

As these discoveries extend outside their original licences towards the adjacent areas, the Brazilian legislation requires an unitisation process. The agreements establish the tract participation each party will hold on the unitised areas, as well as the terms and conditions for the shared development of the projects.


- The Atapu accumulation extends towards the BM-S-11A licence. The agreement establishes that the licence represents 17.03% of the unitised area (BM-S-11A + ToR + Open Area), with Galp now holding a 1.703% interest through its 10% stake in BM-S-11A.
- The BM-S-11A licence hold two additional accumulations, Berbigão and Sururu, also subject to unitisation processes. These UAs, submitted to ANP in 2018, are yet to be approved by the regulator.


The Sépia discovery extends towards the Sépia East area, within the BM-S-24 licence. The agreement establishes that the licence represents 12.07% of the unitised area (BM-S-24 + ToR), with Galp now holding a 2.414% interest through its 20% stake in BM-S-24. BM-S-24 is also home to the large Jupiter discovery, which is a separate accumulation and therefore not included in this UA.

The UAs are effective as of September 1, 2019.

Unitisation processes lead to equalisations among the parties, based on past capital expenditures carried by partners for their original interest and the net profits received thereunder. These equalisations should therefore lead to reimbursements among partners as per the terms and conditions under negotiation between themselves.

The approval of the unitisation agreements do not result in any changes to Galp’s production guidance since the Company’s operational and financial projections already reflected the anticipated outcome from the already approved unitisation processes, as well as the expected outcome for the remaining ongoing processes.
