(Petrobras, 9.Jul.2024) — Petrobras has signed a Master Agreement with Yara Brasil Fertilizantes S.A. as a next step in its negotiations to structure potential business partnerships in the fertilizer segment, production of industrial products and decarbonization of production, in line with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the parties on 29 Feb. 2024.

The Master Agreement is non-binding and aligned with the company’s strategic guidelines approved last year, in which investing in fertilizer production has once again become part of Petrobras’s portfolio, as disclosed in the Strategic Plan 2024-28+.
