Environmental Guidelines

Published: Monday, 02 July 2018 18:53 | Last Updated: Tuesday, 21 May 2019 15:04 | Hits: 1022

In compliance with CNPE Resolution 17/17, the areas offered in the bidding rounds promoted by the ANP are previously analyzed for environmental feasibility by the state environmental agencies and by the Interinstitutional Working Group on Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Activities (GTPEG).

The objective of this joint effort is to exclude areas due to environmental restrictions due to overlap with locations where oil and natural gas exploration and production (E & P) activities are not possible or recommendable.

As a result of this analysis, the environmental agencies elaborate reports containing environmental guidelines and recommendations for environmental licensing, which allow the future concessionaire to include the environmental variable in its technical and economic feasibility studies of oil and natural gas E & P projects.

All reports are in Portuguese.

Joint Manifestations MME-MMA

Offshore basins

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 CGMAC (General Coordination of Environmental Licensing of Marine and Coastal Enterprises).

The following basins were analyzed by the GTPEG in the scope of the Open Acreage of Areas:

  • Campos Basin
  • Ceará Basin
  • Pará-Maranhão Basin
  • Potiguar Basin
  • Santos Basin
  • Sergipe-Alagoas Basin


Onshore basins

State Environmental Entities (OEMAs) are responsible for the environmental licensing of land activities restricted to the boundaries of a single state.

Some OEMAs developed a specific opinion for the Open Acreage of areas while others validated the analysis performed on previous rounds.

The GTPEG also presents recommendations for the accomplishment of activities located in the onshore basins.


Amazonas Basin


Espírito Santo Basin


Paraná Basin


Parnaíba Basin


Note: The GTPEG reported that some blocks overlap the areas proposed for the creation of federal Conservation Units ESEC Jerumenha and MONA Escarpas da Gurgueia, but that this aspect could be addressed in the ambit of environmental licensing.


Potiguar Basin



Recôncavo Basin


Sergipe-Alagoas Basin


Tucano Sul Basin

In order to facilitate the visualization of the information, there is a Synthesis table with the considerations of the environmental agencies for the blocks offered (Portuguese only):

For blocks that do not yet have any environmental advice, the ANP will wait for the position to take appropriate action.
The review of the content of this page is intended to keep the most current environmental advice available.
