Brazil sells Parnaiba blocks in first round of oil auction

RIO DE JANEIRO, May 14 (Reuters) - Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras, Portugal’s Galp and Brazil’s OGX won Brazilian onshore oil and gas exploration blocks in a frontier region of Brazil’s Parnaiba Basin at an auction on Tuesday conducted by oil regulator ANP.

They agreed to pay a combined 61.3 million reais ($30 million) for the rights to the blocks in Brazil’s northeast. The blocks are near the same basin where OGX bought rights in 2007 and is now producing natural gas.
