For compliance with the provisions in CNPE Resolution No. 17/17, the areas offered in the bidding rounds promoted by ANP are previously analyzed as for the environmental feasibility by the environmental state authorities and the Interinstitutional Working Group of Exploration and Production of Oil and Gas – GTPEG.
The purpose of this joint work is to eventually exclude areas with environmental restrictions due to overlapping with areas where exploration and production (E&P) of oil and gas is not possible or recommended.
As a result of this analysis, opinions are prepared by the environmental authorities containing some guidelines that allow the future concessionaire to include the environmental variable in its technical and economic feasibility studies of the projects of E&P of oil and gas.
Environmental licensing of maritime activities and in an E & P transition zone is carried out by the Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA) through the General Coordination of Environmental Licensing of Marine and Coastal Enterprises (CGMAC).
