Petrobras, following up on the release disclosed on November 17, 2020, informs the beginning of the binding phase regarding the sale of all of its stakes in the Albacora and Albacora Leste concessions, located predominantly in deep waters in the Campos Basin.

Potential buyers qualified for this phase will receive a process letter with detailed instructions on the divestment process, including guidelines for due diligence and the submission of binding proposals.

This disclosure complies with the Petrobras' internal rules and with the provisions of the special procedure for assignment of rights to exploration, development and production of oil, natural gas and other fluid hydrocarbons, provided for in Decree 9,355/2018.

This transaction is in line with the portfolio optimization strategy and the improvement of the company’s capital allocation, increasingly concentrating its resources in world-class assets, that is, those that are more resilient in the face of oil price fluctuations, with less risk and greater financial return.
