According to Prates, it is necessary to clarify who defines the rules of the game. “This pricing policy is not from Petrobras, the pricing policy is from the government. Let’s start separating these things well. Petrobras will make its pricing policy, for its customers, for the volume and number of its customers, like any other company sells Who is I will give the price policy, in general, for Brazil, if there will be, in any way, a buffer, a stabilization account, a reference price, etc., absolutely not talking about freezing, no strong act in this intermediate sense, it is the Brazilian government, the government is one thing, Petrobras is another,” said the MP, who is expected to take over the state-owned company.
Jean Paul reiterated what the transitional government had said, which recommended the general halt of any sale of the oil company’s assets until the new government takes charge and evaluates whether they will also be sold.
“Today we are having the second meeting on oil, gas and fuels. We already have a large part of the diagnosis ready for November 30th.
