Money Control: ONGC joins Shell, Petrobras in Brazilian oil block


LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell Plc said on Wednesday it was increasing its stake in a Brazilian oil block and, as part of the transaction, India's state-controlled ONGC Videsh Ltd would also take a stake.


Shell has exercised its pre-emption option to buy an additional 30 percent interest in the Shell operated BC-10 block offshore Brazil and will sell half this stake to ONGC.


Technical and commercial studies are underway for the development of BC-10, which has the potential for production of around 100,000 barrels of oil per day, Shell said.

Brazilian state oil company Petrobras will remain a shareholder in the project.
