Brazil’s PSC Round 6: do the Majors have enough exposure to pre-salt acreage?

Report summary

The results of the PSC 6 round were disappointing. Brazil’s 2019 roster of four auctions closed on 7 November, with US$1.25 billion raised in signature bonuses from the Aram block. Despite holding 40 billion barrels of unrisked in-place prospective resources, the blocks failed to garner enough interest to spark competitive bidding. Will this lackluster outcome increase pressure on the government to revamp its regulatory framework?
