Thailand’s oil company PTTEP has bought a 20% interest from Shell in an offshore block in Brazil.

The concession is located in the Espirito Santo Basin, in deep water of offshore Brazil, covering an area of approximately 550 square kilometers.

This agreement is subject to the approval of Brazil’s National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (the ANP).
