Activities

From the well to the service station and much more. To generate the energy that sets your life into motion, we operate in several areas. We research, innovate and provide you with quality products.

We are world-renowned for our ultra-deep water oil exploration technology. However, it is not enough to reach the field and lift the oil and gas out of it. It is a long process. We have to get it to our refineries. And they have to be equipped and in constant evolution to supply the best products.

Since our business is energy, parallelly, we research and develop new sources of energy, such as biodiesel. Wherever we operate, we take the degree of demand and quality of the Petrobras brand with us.
