Petro Rio S.A., in addition to the material facts disclosed to the market on January 30 and February 13, 2019, hereby informs its shareholders, on this date, conditions precedent having been met and necessary approvals granted, the closing of the acquisition of Chevron Brasil Upstream Frade Ltda. (“Chevron Frade”), owner of a 51.74% interest in the concession and operation of the Frade Field, along with a proportional stake in the operating assets of the Field.

From this date, the economic benefit stemming from the interest in the Frade Field will be accounted and incorporated in PetroRio’s financial statements. The Company is now also the operator of the Field, granting influence in the consortium’s decisions and allowing the implementation of cost reduction measures and synergies in its operations.

The acquisition represents the conclusion of yet another successful step in the execution of PetroRio’s growth strategy, through the acquisition and redevelopment of producing fields. With this transaction, PetroRio’s production will increase by 11 thousand barrels per day, and 43 million barrels of oil will be added to 2P reserves. PetroRio estimates that the acquisition will allow significant opportunities for cost cutting initiatives through operational synergies in land, air and sea, and the Company will plan for the redevelopment of Frade, which can include drilling campaigns and water injections, to be determined with the help of the Geology, Reservoir and Well Engineering teams. As such, the Company expects to replicate the success in Polvo Field and extend the Field’s economic life by over 10 years.

With this acquisition, the Company also debuts its participation in the Brazilian pre-salt, with the possible exploration of prospects analogous to the discovery in the Roncador Field, at a depth of 4500 meters, which can be part of new drilling initiatives planned for 2020.
