A Bit about Petrobras and Gustavo's Keynote

Petrobras is an integrated energy company, employing more than 80,000 people. In his keynote, Gustavo pointed out that more than 50% of the needed oil supply must come from reserves yet to be discovered or recent finds still under evaluation.

Understanding this demand, Petrobras is committed to integrating growth, profitability, and social and environmental responsibility.

How will Petrobras achieve this? Gustavo discussed how the commitment described above is strongly linked to the following 3 "pillars," which are listed below and shown in the slide to the left.

3 Pillars Linked Petrobras' Success:

1) Expanding Limits
