Chevron bullish on Brazil's pre-salt but seeking better incentives

  • Chevron (NYSE:CVX) wants to play a role in Brazil's pre-salt oil discoveries, which could be the most important development in the company's century-long stay in Brazil, country manager Mariano Vela says.
  • "We want a piece of that," Vela told the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, according to Reuters, without saying directly whether the company plans to bid at the Brazilian government's planned December auction for licenses in the Sepia and Atapu pre-salt blocks.
  • The same two blocks were offered in a 2019 auction that stumbled because of high license fees and regulatory uncertainty.
  • Incentives have improved since then, Vela said today, but added that regulation improvements and financial incentives are still needed to make Brazil's new oil projects more attractive.

    For this year the company, based in San Ramon revenue will be around 148.24 billion USD. This is according to the average of the analysts' estimates. This is quite more than 2021's revenue of 94.47 billion USD.
