The objects of the Open Acreage Concession Offer were selected in basins with different environments and exploration models: blocks located on New Frontier basins and blocks that are located on High Potential basins. The blocks are onshore and offshore located.
The different environments and exploration models are in order to expand the reserves and the Brazilian production of oil and natural gas, expand the knowledge on sedimentary basins, decentralize the exploration investment in the country, set domestic and foreigner companies in Brazil, as well as to provide opportunities to small and medium-size companies.
The 600 blocks with exploratory risk are available for declaration of interest, located in 34 sectors of 10 Brazilian sedimentary basins, totaling 191,238,264 km². There are 527 blocks offered in the onshore basins Espírito Santo, Potiguar, Recôncavo, Sergipe-Alagoas, Paraná, Parnaíba and Tucano, as well as 73 blocks in the offshore basins Campos, Santos, Sergipe-Alagoas, Ceará and Potiguar.
The technical and economic parameters of the blocks are set out in the updated version of the Notice of the Open Acreage, published on 05/17/2019. The Tender Protocol is available for consultation in word and pdf.
These 600 blocks comply with the provisions of Resolutions CNPE 08/2018 and 17/2017, which determines that the areas offered in the rounds of bids promoted by the ANP must be previously analyzed for environmental feasibility by the state environmental agencies and by the Interagency Working Group of Oil and Gas Exploration and Production (GTPEG) Activities, as well as, in the specific case of the Open Acreage, have already been authorized by CNPE in previous tenders.
In order to hold the bidding session, the ANP must have received at least one statement of the sector of interest accompanied by an offer guarantee.
We offer below maps and Shapefiles of the 600 blocks on offer in the Open Acreage process.

Blocks under study
A total of 1,139 blocks are being studied, from 20 sedimentary basins, new frontier and mature, totaling 615.042,509 Km2.
Of this total, 185 blocks are located in 8 onshore basins: Amazonas, Parana, Parecis, Recôncavo, São Francisco, Solimões, Tucano and Sergipe-Alagoas.
Also, 954 blocks with exploratory risk are located in 13 offshore basins: Barreirinhas, Camamu-Almada, Ceará, Espírito Santo, Foz do Amazonas, Jacuípe, Jequitinhonha, Pará-Maranhão, Pelotas, Pernambuco-Paraiba, Potiguar, Santos and Sergipe- Alagoas.
The blocks under study will be available for the Open Acreage as soon as their studies and evaluations are concluded, their respective environmental opinions are issued and after a public hearing is held.
We offer below maps and Shapefiles of the blocks under study in the Open Acreage process.
