Report summary

Brazil's Round 12 provided a somewhat disappointing close to licensing in 2013. Held under the existing concession system, it raised less than US$300 million in the form of signature bonuses and work commitments. Less than 30% of the offered acreage was licensed by 12 companies, and the round largely failed in its objective to unlock frontier onshore areas prospective for unconventional gas.
