Brazil energy company Eneva eyes buying Petrobras gas assets in 2021

Eneva also expects to participate in government auctions set for 2021 for energy generation plants, which were originally scheduled to take this year but postponed because of uncertainties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

SAO PAULO: Brazil energy company Eneva will look into acquiring potential divestments in the gas sector from oil company Petrobras next, the company’s financial director Marcelo Habibe said on Wednesday.

Eneva also expects to participate in government auctions set for 2021 for energy generation plants, which were originally scheduled to take this year but postponed because of uncertainties brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

Habibe said Eneva is particularly interested in the so-called A-5 and A-6 auctions, set for September. “It would be a project of somewhere about 600 megawatts, but we are still evaluating, the discussions are in early stages,” Habibe said.

Among the Petrobras assets that Eneva would be interesting in purchasing are gas exploration fields and thermoelectric plants.
