Petrobras’ divestment program shall impose a new dynamic on the Brazilian downstream industry, starting from the creation of a more competitive market, with the participation of new agents in the refining and logistics activities in the country.
This new reality will require an integrated assessment of the entire chain that will bring up the debate on critical issues, such as: models of market organization, price formation mechanisms, regulatory aspects, roles and responsibilities of agents, investments in logistics infrastructure (including competition logistics), expansion of the cabotage market, among others.
At the same time, the downstream segment will need to reformulate itself, becoming increasingly efficient, in order to keep up with the global energy transition, in which new clean and renewable energy sources occupy an increasingly larger space in the energy matrix.

The Campos Basin is currently in an advanced stage of exploration. Therefore, the best use of its oil resources requires investments in revitalization projects.
Such investment opportunities arise from two main strands, one of which is the acquisition of fields by independent operators (both international and local), through Petrobras’ divestment programs in shallow waters, and the other one is said company’s strategic alliances with IOCs and NOCs in deep and ultra-deep waters.
As a result, we can already see the diversification of operators in the Brazilian offshore, giving rise to new investments and the expansion of the job market.
In order for these initiatives to continue to be successful, it is necessary to build a regulatory environment that is conducive to attracting investments, by improving operational regulation, streamlining environmental licensing and reducing tax overload.
The topics addressed in this section will be:
– Revitalization of offshore fields;
– Petrobras’ divestments;
– Strategic alliances;
– Diversification of operators;
– Regulatory environment.

The energy world is in a profound transition to reduce emissions and to create new efficiencies that will sustain the competitiveness of companies and countries. This transformation of our energy ecosystem is creating massive shifts in the geopolitics of energy – the countries and the companies that win and lose, and how they relate to each other. Our challenge is to understand these geopolitical transformations, how they will affect energy markets in the near-term, what may define energy superpowers of the future, and what will shape evolving concepts energy security.
How will the US election results affect the politics of energy and climate change?
Will China-US tensions deepen and how will that affect energy markets?
Might oil from Iran, Libya and Venezuela return to global markets?
Could climate change create new incentives for energy interconnections in Latin America to mitigate the risk of shortages and brown outs?
Will ESG and social pressure against oil and gas investment lead to supply shortages and higher prices that make the lowest cost producers richer?
Will China’s renewable energy dominance make it the next energy superpower?
This session will explore the interacting dynamics of energy and politics – and some of the counterintuitive outcomes that may lie ahead.

Brazil’s New Gas Market bill is an important component of the government’s strategy to reignite economic growth. A New Gas law would encourage new entrants in the market, provide a level playing field in the midstream sector, and foster competition in natural gas trading. The rapid evolution of international gas markets combined with new sources of domestic supply can unlock multiple business opportunities, but regulation and politics are crucial to the success of the new market.
This session will cover:
• Long-term perspective of an open market and critical next steps in the reform process
• Discussion of actions needed to underpin demand growth and optimise gas tariffs to end users
• The emergence of a global gas market and its implications for Brazil

Over the past few years, Brazil has been gaining more and more prominence in the oil and gas industry. The country has been the main actor in the discovery of large reservoirs and in the increase of ultra-deep waters offshore production, with the execution of large projects, resilient even in the global crisis scenario (and in the industry).
This section aims at:
– Discussing key issues associated with the development of large projects in ultra-deep waters;
– The main challenges, either technological, logistical, regulatory, economic or commercial, in all stages, from the exploration and construction of wells to subsea installation and FPSOs;
– Ways to speed up project execution in its various aspects;
– Opportunities for gain efficiency, reduction of costs and continuation of the development of offshore projects in the context of the transformation of the industry and the energy matrix.

In 2020, as a result of the pandemic, governance and cybersecurity assumed a major role within companies, so that they are already called “the new climate change”.
Cyber attacks are costing companies millions of dollars in revenue and are still damaging the brand’s reputation due to downtime.
In order to address the scenario of cyber attacks and possible protection initiatives, the question in this session will not be whether your company will be attacked, but when and how it will happen.
Will your company be ready for when it happens?

Brazil has one of the most developed biofuels markets, currently supported by two main pillars: mandates (mandatory mixing percentages) and the Renovabio Program. The current discussion involves some suggestions so that market mechanisms may act more freely, be it in ethanol (equalization of import rules and end of mandatory stocks and purchases of anhydrous), or in biodiesel (opening for imports and freedom of commercialization), or in new products that are being developed in the market (for example, green diesel and its competition with Biodiesel).

The transportation sector was a pioneer in the recent opening movements of natural gas in Brazil, when the southeast network was acquired by Brookfield, then creating Nova Transportadora do Sudeste (NTS). This process took place later when Transportadora Associada de Gás (TAG) was purchased by the consortium ENGIE and Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (CDPQ). In this same pace, Petrobras’ interest in Transportadora Brasileira Gasoduto Bolivia-Brasil (TBG) will be sold, in order to comply with the Term of Commitment for the Termination of Practice (TCC) signed with the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE).
Accordingly, this segment was also a pioneer in the country, when it established the exit/entry system as a new model for hiring transportation capacity, aiming at providing greater agility and liquidity to the sector’s operations.
These movements bring numerous challenges, not all of which are the responsibility of the transporter, but essential to encourage the entry of new shippers (consumers, producers or traders), the main purpose of the opening, among which we highlight:
(1) making the transition from a transportation sector managed by a single integrated and state-owned company viable by migrating to an environment with private carriers, hired by various traders and consumers
(2) adjustment of existing contracts to the new contracting model, and provision of simplified transportation contracts for the new commercial environment
(3) Sense of urgency to offer firm capacity to materialize the opening of the market
(4) creation of a new business environment that encourages the entry of new players in the commercialization of natural gas and contracting of its transportation
(5) creation/compensation of network balancing services and the ultimate provider
(6) creation of a single market area and virtual hub for the sale of natural gas
In this special session, these and other new challenges faced by the transportation industry will be addressed and how each agent understands that it may contribute to overcoming them.

The fuel market has an approximate volume of 125 billion liters, having revenues of approximately BRL 450 billion and collecting approximately BRL 150 billion in taxes, of which BRL 92 billion refer to ICMS. As a competitive economic activity, the configuration of the fuel chains must provide the greatest possible competitiveness, in order to seek maximum economic yield, resulting from productive efficiency and resource allocation.
However, high taxation, combined with low gross margins for distribution, logistics and resale (approximately 2.8 x 1), makes the sector attractive for the practice of tax evasion, persistent default, sales without a tax document, simulation of fictitious transactions and adulteration. According to a survey performed by Fundação Getúlio Vargas – FGV, in 2019, the sector reached BRL 7.2 billion in tax evasion and default. This practice causes irreparable damage to the country, damaging the entire sector, leading the law-abiding entrepreneur to bankruptcy, discouraging large investments, and reducing government revenues, which could use this amount to strengthen areas of health, education and public security.
This panel aims at fostering the debate on the challenges required to leverage regional, interregional and international competitiveness in the Brazilian fuel market, especially in this moment of transition for the downstream segment.
Formation of fuel prices in Brazil
Concentration of the Brazilian fuel market
Fuel chain efficiency
New technologies to boost competitiveness

The Brazilian tax system is highly complex, consisting of too many taxes, concentrated on consumption, and requires a high administrative cost from both the taxpayer and the tax administration. This complexity contributes to the increase in the “Brazil cost”, stimulating unfair competition, corruption, tax evasion and legal uncertainty.
In the fuel market, high taxation makes the sector attractive for the practice of tax evasion, persistent default, sales without a tax document, simulation of fictitious operations and adulteration. The latter, although not tax wrong, consists of replacing a product of higher taxation with another with a lower tax burden to obtain the gain by the difference.
Thus, this panel aims at assessing the best taxation model for the downstream segment in Brazil, which ensures a competitive, diversified and efficient value chain for the final consumer, in order to attract investments and generate income in the country, from the adoption of measures aimed at: restraining and reducing tax evasion in the chain; promoting equality among agents; reducing complexity; removing tax factors that discourage investments in refining, logistics and fuel distribution; reduce the cost of tax management in companies.

Petrobras’ divestments in refining open the way for a transformational change in the Brazilian downstream. In addition to the implementation of a competitive environment in refining, the fact that Brazil is one of the 10 largest markets for oil products in the world creates opportunities for evolution throughout the chain, from a dynamic business environment for refiners, distributors and retailers, traders (importers / exporters), infrastructure players (terminals, pipelines) and others.
However, for this opportunity to be real, there is a need to not only for evolving in many regulatory aspects, but also to deepen the understanding of the downstream status in other reference countries, especially with the greatest pressure for the energy transition as a result of COVID -19.
This session will comprise:
Characteristics of the downstream industry in reference countries
Impacts of accelerating the post-COVID-19 energy transition
Main gaps in Brazil (regulation, investments, training)
Vision of full potential for the industry in the long run and critical actions in the short term

Several changes are underway in the electricity the natural gas industries. Renewable energies are becoming increasingly competitive, significantly increasing their participation in our energy matrix.
As a result of this and other issues, important changes have been discussed in order to modernize the regulation of the electricity sector.
On the other hand, the natural gas sector is also going through a stage of rapid maturation, as it can be seen, among other initiatives, by the Novo Mercado de Gás (New Gas Market) program.
Still in the context of natural gas, thermal generation is considered an important demand, due to its high consumption since the beginning of its operations. IBP argues that inflexible generation is allowed without restrictions, but through competitive processes with other generating sources to meet the expansion needs of the electricity sector. It also defends the recognition of the value of all the attributes added to the system that are associated with thermoelectric generation (including requirements for despachability, energy security, electrical security, peak generation, and reduction of transmission losses)
The discussion is how to harmonize the demands of the two sectors through mutually beneficial alternatives. In thermal generation, the electricity industry aims at complementing the renewables, and the oil companies have the challenge of making their production viable, mainly in fields with associated natural gas.

The attraction of investments in logistics and production infrastructure to supply oil products, biofuels and gas may be approached from two points of view: the financing model for these investments, based on private infrastructure funds and the stable and planned regulatory environment to meet free market needs in the sector.
The panel aims at discussing and exemplifying the two in order to provide visibility to these issues in this moment of transition.
-Financing models: the opportunity for financing through private investment funds for infrastructure
-Business Environment: attractiveness for investments: political stability, “Brazil” risk, access to capital, etc.
-Regulatory environment: development of regulation (statutory and non-statutory) to support competition in the refining market

The sedimentary basins of the Brazilian continental margin known as frontier areas comprise: the basin from the Mouth of the Amazon River to the Potiguar basin, on the Equatorial Margin; the deep water areas of the Santos and Campos basins; the east margin that covers the Mucuri basin to the Pernambuco-Paraíba basin; and a large part of the Pelotas basin. In such frontier areas, geological knowledge is limited due to the lack of data. Moreover, technical, operational and logistics challenges are greater than in mature areas.
In this special session, we will debate five fundamental aspects on the subject: geological knowledge, logistics, financial exposure, broad portfolio and regulatory framework:
– How to expand geological knowledge in frontier areas; – How to distribute the exploratory effort between frontier areas of the pre-salt and other basins, in order to diversify investment in areas of high exploratory risk.
– How Government and Regulatory Agencies can encourage and facilitate companies to enter remote areas;
– What are the business demands to access these areas;

ESG topics and, more specifically, climate change, are becoming more relevant every day among consumers, investors, public policy makers and business leaders. The COVID-19 crisis has further accelerated this discussion.
The Paris Agreement, signed by almost 200 countries, proposes a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This ambition creates pressure for structural changes in the O&G industry. Many of the large companies in the sector have responded to this pressure by announcing plans and targets to reduce the carbon intensity of their portfolios.
Adjusting to this new paradigm will be a huge challenge for the industry as a whole. This panel brings reference names on the topic and investors to discuss how companies should act to generate competitive advantages in this new context.

It is well known that companies and research point to the importance of diversity. However, the rise of women leaders is progressing at a slower pace. Why?
In what reality are we inserted today regarding the theme and what needs to be changed? What is the favorable mindset for advancement? What do the reference companies in diversity and inclusion practices implement as a strategy?
This panel aims at creating a discussion and exploring the vision of leaders in the industry engaged in this topic; in addition to the perspective of a global human resources consulting company that has been supporting organizations to implement better strategies for an inclusive culture and to work the mindset of their leaders.

In the last 20 years, there has been a major increase in oil production in Brazil and competitiveness in exploration in deep and ultra-deep waters. Much of this evolution is due to advances in the competitiveness of the goods and services sector. However, there are still challenges to be overcome, so that the capacity developed and installed in the country may compete on a global scale.
There are several initiatives that may contribute to this. For example, the creation of financing instruments for the export of goods and services, adjustments in the sector’s tax burden, review of the application of royalties in marginal fields, allocation of RD&I resources for the development of cutting-edge technologies, among others.
In this sense, it is necessary that the government, operators and the supply chain jointly formulate and implement actions with a clear definition of deadlines and performance counterparts. These actions may pave the way for a robust and sustainable path of progress that will allow the O&G sector in Brazil to be as attractive as in other global centers. This session brings reflections on the current competitiveness challenges, because today the competition is not only amongst companies, but between countries where to invest and also with other sources of energy.

It is well known that the Brazilian pre-salt has large reserves of oil and natural gas. However, the monetization of this gas has been the subject of several discussions, and it is clear that by 2027 not only the offer, but also the available infrastructure, will meet the existing demand.
The discussion to be addressed is how can the potential supply of natural gas be monetized economically, in addition to what the market already contracts?
Decisions to monetize this natural gas need to be made well in advance, whether for export via pipelines, for internal consumption, export via liquefaction, or its use in increasing production, via reinjection. Such decisions demand huge resources, required for the construction of a new outflow, treatment, transportation and distribution infrastructure, necessary to bring natural gas to the final consumer.
In this context, the industry is undergoing an important paradigm shift, where the hitherto hegemonic agent, Petrobras, assumed the risks and defined how natural gas would reach the market. In the new business environment, Petrobras will one more amongst many players entering the industry.
The question of anchor demands becomes crucial. What new demands will arise, enabling and benefiting from large volumes of potentially available natural gas? How will the new dynamics of the Brazilian consumer market be?
The market needs to find its own means to, in an economical way, present proposals for the development of demand, and the best way to meet it either with domestic supply or with imported natural gas.

The process of decarbonization of the O&G industry requires innovation, technological development, cost reduction, design optimization and, above all, a direction given by the consumer market. These parameters will define what is an opportunity and what is a challenge, what is already feasible and what is still research. Initiatives ranging from CCS, through natural-based solutions, new sources of energy, and even the availability of new, more environmentally friendly products, are solutions presented by the oil and gas industry that are already competing with each other for funds from sustainable investment funds. In this special session, we will present what is already reality and what is still science, so that the participants may draw their own conclusions about the speed of this decarbonization and the right time to redirect their money to a low carbon economy.
