Full Description

This presentation will describe the resource potential of key Latin America producers, particularly Venezuela and Brazil, and the possible role they could play relative to the global energy equation.

Venezuela’s vast extra heavy oil resources in the Orinoco Belt are one of the largest global discovered resources. This talk will touch on the Orinoco Belt’s potential, as well as some of the key development challenges.

Additionally, Brazil's Offshore Deepwater has recently emerged with the largest remaining offshore resource accumulation in the world. The development of these highly complex deep and ultra deep water resources will also be a key ingredient to help meet long term global oil demand.
