The objective of the protocol is to express the purpose of prospecting and structuring business opportunities, with the supply of natural gas, either as raw material or as a source of power and heat generation. All confidential information or transmitted data or data to which the parties have access as a result of the protocol are duly protected by a confidentiality clause.
“The Sergipe Deep Waters project is a new frontier for the development of oil and, especially, gas production.
