Reserve Based Lending (RBL) Assessment

Confidence. Quality. Independence.

Aligning with the right strategic partner can provide a competitive advantage in the emerging Brazilian oil and gas reserve lending market.

About RBL

The National Agency of Petroleum (ANP) resolution №󠇡785 as of May 5, 2019 brought greater legal certainty to new financing options in the Exploration and Production (E&P) of Oil & Gas, favoring the development of Reserve Based Lending (RBL) operations in Brazil.

This kind of financial mechanism is used in other jurisdictions in assets already in production or which will have the first oil soon. The ANP expects this modality to facilitate the sale of mature fields in the country, securing increased investment and enhanced recovery on production in Brazil.
