Therefore, considering their strategic adherence to the portfolio, as well as their profitability profile, Petrobras announces the termination of the divestment processes for Urucu Cluster, Bahia Terra Cluster, Manati Field and Petrobras Operaciones S.A. (Petrobras’ subsidiary in Argentina).
As for the other assets, their permanence in the portfolio will be periodically reassessed based on updated assumptions of profitability, strategic adherence, decarbonization opportunities and the stage of their productive life. Those whose divestment is approved by the Board of Directors will be communicated to the market in due course.
In the G&P segment:
