Galp acquires Uirapuru block stake in Brazil’s 4th production sharing bid round
Galp will hold a 14% stake in this new pre-salt area, and Petrobras, who exercised its operatorship rights, will hold 30%. ExxonMobil and Equinor will each hold 28%. Acquisition is part of Galp’s strategic commitment to strengthen its position in high-quality assets in core areas.

Galp, through its Brazilian subsidiary, Petrogal Brasil, and in partnership with ExxonMobil Exploração Brasil Ltda. (ExxonMobil) and Statoil Brasil Óleo e Gás Ltd. (Equinor), acquired the Uirapuru exploration block pursuant to the 4th Production Sharing Bid Round hosted today by the Brazilian National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP) in Brazil.

Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) exercised its right to enter in the consortium as operator and will hold a 30% interest in the area, with Petrogal Brasil holding 14%, while ExxonMobil and Equinor 28% each.

The consortium offered a profit oil of 75.49%. Additional commitments include the payment of a signature bonus of R$2.65 bn (c.$683 m gross or c.$96 m net to Petrogal Brasil) (1), and the drilling of one exploration well.

Uirapuru has an area of 1,285 km2 and is located in the pre-salt polygon in the Santos basin, 175 km from shore, at water depths ranging from 800 to 2,100 metres. The block is close to Galp’s BM-S-8 and adjacent Carcará North licenses, where the Company currently holds 17% and 20% interests, respectively.

The acquisition is part of Galp’s strategic commitment to strengthen its position in high-quality assets in core areas, such as the Brazilian pre-salt, through selected partnerships.
