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.
