Petrobras signs contract for sale of the Potiguar Cluster
Petrobras, following up on the release disclosed on 01/28/2022, informs that it signed today with the company 3R Potiguar S.A., a wholly owned subsidiary of 3R Petroleum Óleo e Gás S.A., a contract for the sale of the totality of its stake (100%) in a set of 22 concessions of onshore and shallow water production fields, together with its infrastructure for processing, refining, logistics, storage, transport and outflow of oil and natural gas, located in the Potiguar Basin, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte - RN, jointly called Potiguar Cluster.

The total amount of the sale is US$ 1.38 billion, being (a) US$ 110 million paid on this date; (b) US$ 1.04 billion at the closing of the transaction and (c) US$ 235 million that will be paid in 4 annual installments of US$ 58.75 million, as of March/24. The amounts do not consider adjustments due until the closing of the transaction, which is subject to compliance with precedent conditions, such as approval by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP).

This disclosure is in accordance with Petrobras' internal rules and with the provisions of the special procedure for the assignment of rights of exploration, development and production of oil, natural gas and other fluid hydrocarbons, provided for in Decree 9,355/2018.

This operation is in line with the company's portfolio management strategy and the improved allocation of its capital, aiming to maximize value and provide greater return to society. Petrobras is increasingly concentrating its resources on assets in deep and ultradeep waters, where it has shown a great competitive edge over the years, producing better quality oil and with lower greenhouse gas emissions.

The Ubarana subcluster concessions are located in shallow waters, between 10 and 22 km off the coast of the municipality of Guamaré-RN.
