    Chevron grows headcount at Houston-area refinery after acquisition

    California-based Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) has added employees to its refinery in Pasadena since it bought the asset in May for about $350 million, and it will probably add more by the end of the year. The company maintained all of the domestic employees who worked at the refinery after Chevron bought it from Brazil’s state-owned Petróleo Brasileiro SA (NYSE: PBR), commonly called Petrobras. The support organization — people who worked on the refinery’s financials, the legal team and others — worked under the broader U.S. arm of Petrobras, which meant Chevron had to hire its own team of about 25 to handle that part of the refinery’s business, said Tim Sutherland, the refinery’s general manager.

    Petrobras confirms natural gas find in Sergipe Basin

    Brazilian state-run oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA has made natural gas discoveries in six deep-water fields in the Sergipe Basin, it said in a regulatory filing on Monday. Newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo reported on Sunday that the find was the largest since the sub-salt discoveries in 2006, and that Petrobras could extract up to 20 million cubic meters of natural gas per day, equivalent to one third of total Brazilian production. According to O Estado, the find could help deliver the "cheap energy shock" to Brazil promised by Economy Minister Paulo Guedes, his vision to reduce the cost of natural gas by up to 50% and "reindustrialize" the country.

    Exclusive: Petrobras ignored warnings about fuel broker implicated in graft probe

    Brazil's Petrobras found suspicious activity in its oil trading business - and failed to stop it - six years before an alleged bribery scandal erupted in that unit in 2018, according to three people with knowledge of the situation and documents seen by Reuters. A 2012 internal probe at the state-run oil company turned up more than two dozen instances in which traders in Petrobras' Singapore office overpaid for fuel, the people said. Some employees in 2013 recommended halting transactions with one particular fuel brokerage that had consistently sold fuel to Petrobras at above-market prices, according to the people.

    Petrobras expects Brazil Supreme Court approval for governance rules -source

    State-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA expects Brazil's Supreme Court to give its blessing on Wednesday to proposed governance rules for the sale of exploration and production (E&P) rights, according to a source with knowledge on the matter. Petrobras considers a favorable judgment in this case, along with the court's ruling last week that state-run firms do not need congressional approval to sell off their subsidiaries, as the legal pillars of its divestment plan to reduce its high level of debt, one of the highest in the sector. Petrobras, as the company is known, says the plan will allow it to focus on offshore exploration and production in its pre-salt area, where billions of barrels of oil are trapped under a thick layer of salt offshore.

    Brazil's real climbed 0.3%, while the Chilean peso was steady ahead of a central bank rate meeting. Mexico's peso was marginally lower, as investors awaited signs of concrete progress from the U.S.-Mexico talks on Friday. Mexico has ramped up efforts to curb the flow of migrants into the United States via its border, but it is unclear if the efforts will be enough to persuade U.S. President Trump to do away with or postpone a 5 percent tariff set to take effect on Monday.

    UPDATE 4-Petrobras, Brazil government dodge bullet as Supreme Court approves asset sales

    Brazil's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that state-run firms do not need congressional approval to sell their subsidiaries, a major victory for the government of President Jair Bolsonaro and state-run oil firm Petrobras. Also on Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Edson Fachin, who ruled in May to suspend the $8.6 billion sale of Petrobras' TAG pipeline unit to France's Engie SA, reversed his decision in light of the full court's ruling, allowing Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the firm is formally known, to go ahead with the divestment. The decisions will allow Petrobras to proceed with its plan to divest $27 billion of non-core assets by 2023, which it has repeatedly said is key to reducing its bloated debt load.

    Odebrecht SA's failure to sell its controlling stake in petrochemical company Braskem SA to LyondellBasell Industries NV and lack of cash are complicating the task of restructuring 80 billion reais ($20.67 billion) in debt owed by the corruption-ensnared conglomerate, three sources with knowledge of the matter said.

LyondellBasell said on Tuesday it ended talks with Odebrecht SA to buy Braskem "after careful consideration" but did not elaborate further.
