Brazilian election could open door to favourable oil policy shift

Brazilian election could open door to favourable oil policy shift

Report summary

Brazil’s 2014 presidential election is being hotly contested and will require a second round of voting on 26 October. Its outcome will dictate the pace of much-needed reform in Brazil’s oil industry, which has lost its lustre in recent years - weighed down by burdensome regulations, project delays and a lack of new opportunities. Economic necessity should force an improvement in investment climate under the next government, but the nature of change will depend on who wins the presidency.
