Petrobras, as the Brazilian company is known, said the new agreement reaffirms the plan to increase oil recovery rates at mature fields in the Campos basin and has the aim to optimize natural gas production, particularly in the BM-C-33 area in Campos. For that, the agreement includes a provision for Statoil to share Petrobras gas infrastructure at that basin.
