Key Market Trends
Offshore Segment to Dominate the Market
The deep-water and ultra-deep-water activities directly influence the Brazilian oil and gas upstream market in the offshore. After oil prices fell in 2014, many countries shifted toward onshore projects. Still, it turned out that the return investment period of onshore projects is 10 to 15 years. So, Brazil started deep-water and ultra-deep-water explorations, which are more profitable, having a return investment period of 5 to 6 years and this factor has helped the Brazilian oil and gas upstream market grow.
According to the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas, and Biofuels (ANP), in 2019, out of the total oil and gas production in the country, 93% is offshore, and only 7 % is from the onshore. This is expected to drive the Brazilian oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
In 2018, Brazil was the 10th largest producer of oil and gas in the world, the largest producer in South America, and 7th largest oil products consumer in the world. Most of the oil and gas are produced offshore, which is expected to drive the Brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
Equinor ASA is in the second phase of the development of its Peregrino Oil field in Brazil offshore. Equinor is expecting to invest USD 3.5 billion on the project, which will start production by the end of 2020.
Therefore, activities in offshore are likely to increase and have a positive impact on the Brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.

Deep Water Activities to Drive the Market
Deep-Water projects in the past decade have dominated the offshore brazil oil and gas upstream and are likely to dominate the market in the forecast period. Since 56% of the oil and gas of Brazil come from deep-water activities and 37% from shallow water, so Deep-water is expected to dominate the brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
In 2014, the total oil production of Brazil was 122.5 million tons (MT), which kept on increasing for the coming years.
Libra oil field in Santos Basin in Brazil is an ultra-deep-water basin, is the largest oil field in Brazil, is under development phase, and is expected to complete in 2021. This is likely to have a positive impact on the brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras)in 2019 has awarded MODEC to install the fifth Floating, Production, and Storage Offshore (FPSO) Unit in Buzios field for its development. These development activities are likely to drive the brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
Hence, the above points indicate that deep-water activities are expected to drive the brazil oil and gas upstream market in the forecast period.
