The National Petroluem Agency (ANP) of Brazil found another “megareserve” in the Atlantic, this one off the coast of Sao Paulo. It is believed to big as large as the so-called Lula oil field, which holds between five and 8 billion barrels of oil. Although the discovery is made in the pre-salt fields that stretch from as far north as Espirito Santo, down to Rio, Sao Paulo, Parana and, finally, Santa Catarina states, it is in an area that is not regulated by the current pre-salt partnership model. That means this oil is 100% government owned.
