Peak Oil and the Brazilian Pre-salt

May 25, 2018
3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
IBP - Brazilian Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Institute (Av. Alm. Barroso, 52 - Centro, Rio de Janeiro - RJ)

In this roundtable disscussion, we will address oil peak demand and its impacts on the Brazilian pre-salt. The intention is to debate on how elements of this transition affect the oil sector competitiveness. Given the current context of growing world oil supply at the expense of increased oil price volatility, how will oil prices behave on a flat demand scenario? How does the Brazilian oil sector, especially the one driven by exploration and production on the pre-salt region, fit into this context? Is there a way to diminish the impacts? These are some of the questions this debate will address.
