Petrobras and ExxonMobil Form Strategic Alliance

Dateline City:
IRVING, Texas

IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Petrobras and ExxonMobil
today signed a memorandum of understanding regarding a strategic
alliance to jointly identify and evaluate potential business
opportunities.

The memorandum of understanding was signed in Rio de Janeiro today by
Pedro Parente, president of Petrobras, Brad Corson, president of
ExxonMobil Upstream Ventures, and Stephen Greenlee, president of
ExxonMobil Exploration Company.

Petrobras and ExxonMobil will evaluate areas of mutual interest that can
bring together their world-class experience across all sectors of the
oil and gas production value chain, including opportunities for
cooperation in exploration, production, gas and chemicals both inside
and outside Brazil.

For Petrobras, the formation of alliances is an important strategy in
the Business and Management Plan 2017-2021, bringing significant
potential benefits, such as risk sharing, augmented investment capacity
in the oil and gas chain, technology sharing and strengthening of
corporate governance.

This agreement both exemplifies and reinforces ExxonMobil’s strategic
relationship with Petrobras and continuing emphasis on growing this
relationship and its business in Brazil, building on its more than 100
years in the country.

In September, Petrobras and ExxonMobil jointly acquired six offshore
blocks in the Campos Basin in the Brazil National Agency of Petroleum’s
14th tender round.
