PPSA will sell up to 14.4Mb from the Mero, Lula and Sapinhoá fields, separated by lots. The winner will be the firm that offers the highest price considering a minimum reference price established by regulator ANP.

If the 36-month contracts are not signed this time, the lots will be re-offered as 12-month contracts and will include the possibility of a discount.

The tender will take place on the B3 stock exchange.
