Oil sets the modern world into motion and is present in our daily lives in fuels, fertilizers, plastics, paints, and rubber, among other products. We have built a story of success around it. We have now discovered an immense reserve in the pre-salt, one which holds a type of oil that will allow us to diversify and obtain higher value added products. A new challenge.However, our story is not limited to this. We are searching for energy in other sources, such as natural gas and biofuels.
Natural gas is versatile and can be used in households, in the industry, and as vehicular fuel. Our renewable energy research led us to develop a unique technology in the world to manufacture biodiesel and new techniques to produce ethanol.Parallelly, we are developing techniques to harvest energy from the power of the winds and from rivers.
Pre-saltThe discoveries made in the Pre-Salt raise us to a new level of reserves and oil production, ranking us in a prominent position among the major energy companies.
