ANP Board approved the acquisition of Petrobras divestiture – which contains seven concessions
ANP Board approved the acquisition, by OrigemEnergia (former Petro+), of the Alagoas Complex, a Petrobras’ divestiture formed by six onshore fields and one in shallow waters in Alagoas State at a meeting held on Thursday (11/11).
As a condition for the acquisition ANP determined the submission, by the new operator, of the proposal of the instrument to assure the decommissioning of the Complex, as well as a joint statement signed by the companies attesting the operation transfer.
The Alagoas Complex was sold for US$ 300 million last June; the assets comprise the onshore fields of Anambé, Arapaçu, Cidade de São Miguel dos Campos, Furado, Pilar and São Miguel dos Campos, in addition to Paru, located in shallow waters with water depth of 24 m.
In addition to the fields, the transaction also includes an NGPU with processing capacity of 2 million m³/day of gas, answering for the supply of LPG of the region; two processing plants and a 230 km network of pipes with direct access to the Transpetro oil export terminal located inMaceió.
In interview to PetróleoHoje, the company affirmed that it intends to conduct intervention in 240 producing wells to revitalize the Alagoas Complex assets and that, in the future, new drillings will be carried out in all the fields .
OrigemEnergia was created in 2017 under the name of Petro+. The change of name is connected to the change of its strategy which became the energy integration focusing on the gas production chain.
In addition to the Alagoas Complex, the company has other nine concessions which are located in Bahia (Quererá, Conceição, Fazenda Matinha, Fazenda Santa Rosa and Fazenda Gameleira), Rio Grande do Norte (Tiziu), and Espírito Santo (Garça Branca, Saíra and Mosquito).
