ANP announces public hearing on changes in insurance bond templates

On April 10, 2024, the Brazilian National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (“ANP”) held a public hearing to discuss the review of the insurance bond templates provided for in the Tender Protocols for the Concession Open Acreage and the Production Sharing Open Acreage.

The need to change the templates was caused by the changes in the requirements for issuing insurance bonds, established by the Superintendence of Private Insurance (“SUSEP”), as provided for in SUSEP Circular Letter No. 662/2022. The hearing was followed by a 45-day public consultation, during which 31 contributions were received. Soon, the ANP will publish the new versions of the Tender Protocols, which will regulate the new cycles. Currently, the Tender Protocols are suspended for the opening of new cycles due to the need to adjust the local content regulations to the new guidelines addressed by the National Energy Policy Council (“CNPE”), in compliance with CNPE Resolution No. 11/2023.

ANP approves resolution amending diesel oil specifications

On April 25, 2024, the ANP’s board approved a resolution outlining the new national specifications for road diesel oils as well as quality control measures. This new regulatory act amends ANP Resolution No. 50/2013 and complies with CNPE Resolution No. 16/2018. Among other provisions, the resolution addresses the improvement, by the ANP, of the quality specifications involving A (pure) and B (biodiesel added) biodiesel and diesel oils.

Some of the key changes in the new resolution are:

(i) change in the limits of the specification parameters for S10 and S500 diesel oils, such as oxidation stability, cold clogging point, acidity index and water content;

(ii) inclusion of requirements for proper handling, transport and storage procedures for A and B diesel oils;

(iii) introduction of co-processing as an alternative to diesel oil production, with the definition of C diesel oil, by adding to the country’s transport fuel matrix a product that is partially renewable, which will contribute to mitigating carbon dioxide emissions;

(iv) change in the deadlines for notices of non-compliance when there are changes in the biodiesel content in B S10 and B S500 diesel oils; and

(v) discontinuation of S500 diesel oil for road use and S1800 diesel oil for non-road use, with its replacement by S10 diesel oil with a low sulfur content.

 ANP analyzes report on CCUS

On April 25, 2024, the ANP’s board analyzed a report on the implementation of the regulatory framework for carbon capture, use and storage (“CCUS”) in Brazil. This topic is the focal point of numerous bills currently under discussion by Brazilian Congress. If approved, the ANP will be appointed as the regulatory authority responsible for this activity. Based on the ongoing legislative proposals, the study examined the future implementation of the CCUS regulatory framework by the ANP. The purpose was to anticipate the identification of areas involved as well as the regulatory instruments that will need to be adapted or established after the potential approval of the public policy under analysis. 

As a result, the ANP recognized the importance of an experimental regulation through a pilot project, as an instrument potentially suitable to address the projects involving CCUS that can be submitted to the ANP’s analysis and approval. Currently, numerous ongoing projects have been considered to be financed by the Research, Development and Innovation Clause (“PD&I”) or linked to regulated activities, which require regulatory measures by the ANP in the short or medium term, and whose legal framework is still being processed by Brazilian Congress. 

Finally, the board emphasized the importance of the study as a preparatory step by the ANP, thus sending a clear signal to public and private agents about the intention to make regulatory instruments available to the market in a way to support, in a timely manner, the development of a safe and sustainable CCUS industry.

ANP publishes consolidated data of oil and gas produced in February

On April 02, 2024, the ANP published the Monthly Newsletter of Oil and Natural Gas Production, which provides for the consolidated data regarding Brazilian production in February 2024. The overall production, which includes oil and natural gas, amounted to 4.383 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (MMboe/d).

Regarding oil, 3.448 million barrels per day (bbl/d) were extracted – representing a drop of 2.0% compared to the previous month, yet an increase of 5.7% compared to February 2023. In turn, the production of natural gas in February amounted to 148.63 million cubic meters per day (MMm³/d): These figures indicate a reduction of 3.4% compared to January 2024, but a 1.4% increase compared to February 2023.

The overall production (oil + natural gas) in the pre-salt area for February reached 3.336 million boe/d, corresponding to 76.1% of the Brazilian production. These figures indicate a reduction of 1.5% compared to the previous month and an increase of 2.1% compared to the same month of 2023, when 2.623 million bbl/d of oil and 113.46 million m³/d of natural gas were produced from 148 wells.

The newsletter published by the ANP also pointed out that in February 2024, the natural gas utilization rate reached 96.5%. Of this percentage, 52 million m³/d were made available to the market and the gas flaring reached 5.28 million m³/d. There was a 16.3% increase in gas flaring compared to the previous month, and 38.7% compared to February 2023. The increase in gas flaring occurred as a result of the ongoing commissioning of FPSO Sepetiba, in Campo de Mero, which is common when new platforms are concerned.

ANP approves natural gas tariff proposed by NTS

On April 25, 2024, the ANP’s board approved a tariff proposal submitted by Nova Transportadora do Sudeste S.A. (NTS). The proposal will be applied in the process of offering and contracting existing capacity in transport pipelines operated by NTS, in the inflexible category (that is, with guaranteed movement up to the contracted volume), through annual contracts from 2024 to 2028.

The NTS’ proposal was submitted to public consultation, seeking to obtain contributions from the society as well as to assist the ANP in the calculation of road gas transportation tariffs. The approved tariff proposal complies with the ANP guidelines, including transparency of the regulatory account, seeking tariff moderation and the application of a 90% discount on tariffs applicable to interconnections between carriers, in order to streamline the movement of natural gas across the interconnected transport system.

According to the ANP, the implementation of these measures has the potential to foster the entry of new agents into the market, thus reducing concentration and deepening the process of competition introduction into the natural gas market, which was initiated after the New Gas Law was published.

ANP holds workshop for the lubricants market

On April 26, 2024, the ANP held the 2024 Lubricants Workshop. The event was destined to regulated agents in the lubricants sector, including producers, collectors, re-refiners and foreign trade agents handling lubricating oils, as well as anyone interested in the subject.

At the event’s opening, the ANP’s director, Daniel Maia Vieira, highlighted that the workshop represents another opportunity for direct interaction between the ANP and regulated agents. During the workshop, regulatory aspects of the lubricants sector were presented, with a focus on the Product Handling Information System (“SIMP”).

From the contributions collected, the ANP changed the table with the product codes to be used by agents when informing the handling of products. The change seeks to reduce the total number of codes, thus simplifying the process for agents, as well as improving the ANP analyses.

Thus, the event introduced the new table of codes, the procedures for registering them in SIMP, the measures to be taken by regulated agents, the timetable for implementing the table and the deadlines for the market to adapt.

ANP authorizes first B100 biodiesel test in river navigation

On April 11, 2024, the ANP’s board granted the first authorization for the experimental use of pure biodiesel, known as B100. The authorization allows for the testing of B100 on a vessel restricted to a specific route, with a predefined origin and destination, as well as the amount of biofuel to be used.

ANP Resolution No. 910/2022 regulates the experimental and specific use of biodiesel and its blending with diesel oil in an amount higher than the percentage of mandatory biodiesel addition, as established by CNPE Resolution No. 3/2015, without expressly providing for its use in vessels. Despite the current lack of a specific regulation in Brazil, internationally, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) allows for the use of biofuels, including express provision for biodiesel. 

In addition, the engine manual of vessel manufacturers that will be used in the test provides for the use of biodiesel in their equipment, which was crucial for the ANP’s authorization. The approval follows the recent trend of testing trucks and agricultural machinery with B100 biodiesel, whose results are being monitored by the ANP.

MP on renewable energy and tariff reduction: publication and measures already adopted by ANEEL and MME

On April 10, 2024, Provisional Measure (“MP”) No. 1212/2024 was published, which, in short:

  • allows the extension, by 36 months, of the deadline for the implementation of projects originally required by Law No. 14,120/2021 as a condition for maintaining the 50% discount on the Tariffs on the Use of Electric Power Transmission and Distribution Systems (“TUST/TUSD”); and
  • regulates the use of certain funds to reduce energy tariffs.

As a result, on April 18, 2024 ANEEL released Technical Note No. 458/2024, with procedures for applying the MP. As stated in the document, the provision of a performance bond required by the MP will follow the provisions of ANEEL’s Financial Guarantees or Studies Management Service Manual. The value of the bond will still depend on the definition of the estimated value of the project, which will be established by an act of the MME.

In addition, in line with the MP, the technical note stipulates that agents interested in the extension will have to sign a term of adhesion, which is attached to the technical note and will still be submitted to ANEEL’s board of directors.

It is also worth highlighting that, on April 29, 2024, the MME also regulated part of MP 1212/2024, through Normative Ordinance No. 75/2024. This ordinance established that the funds allocated to Research, Development and Energy Efficiency Projects (“R&D”), not allocated to the Energy Development Account (“CDE”), should be reverted to the benefit of tariff reduction in the concessionaires’ tariff proceedings to be conducted by ANEEL.

Demarest’s Energy and Natural Resources team has prepared a Client Alert addressing the main points of the MP.

Federal Government enters into a BRL 10.4 billion transfer to the Climate Fund

On April 02, 2024, as published by Editora Brasil Energia, Brazil’s National Development Bank (“BNDES”) and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (“MMA”) entered into a contract for transferring BRL 10.4 billion to the Climate Fund. These resources will be used by the BNDES to finance repayable projects aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change.

Part of the fund’s resources will come from the fundraising carried out by the Ministry of Finance in November 2023, from the issuance of USD 2 billion in sustainable sovereign securities in the international market. According to the news, with a record amount of BRL 10.4 billion, the initiative now has a stable funding and becomes the Federal Government’s key instrument – and one of the largest in the world – in fighting against climate change and raising investments for adaptation.

The financing categories in the new Climate Fund are divided into six lines:

(i) resilient and sustainable urban development;

(ii) green industry;

(iii) transport logistics, public transport and green mobility;

(iv) energy transition;

(v) native forests and hybrid resources; and

(vi) green services and innovations. Investments in energy transition can obtain the fund’s financing whenever they involve generation from solar, wind and new renewable sources; conversion of biomass, co-processing and waste into energy; energy storage; modernization of smart grid; biofuels; infrastructure and production chain for the use of hydrogen with renewable sources; and technological development.

RenovaBio: ANP publishes definitive targets for distributors in 2024

On April 03, 2024, the ANP announced the mandatory individual targets for 2024 that must be complied by distributors, within the scope of the National Biofuels Policy – RenovaBio. The individual targets were calculated from the mandatory annual target of 38.78 million decarbonization credits (“CBIOS”) established for 2024 by CNPE Resolution No. 6, of November 29, 2023. The market share of each fuel distributor trading fossil fuels was calculated according to the methodology described in Article 6 of ANP Resolution No. 791, 2019.

The individual targets for 2024 will be added subsequently to the amounts of CBIOs that are not met by the distributor referring to its 2023 target, as provided for in § 1, art. 10 of ANP Resolution No. 791, 2019. By permanently withdrawing CBIOs from circulation, known as “retirement”, distributors meet their individual targets for acquiring decarbonization credits.

According to Decree No. 11,499, of April 25, 2023, the deadline for proving compliance with the 2024 targets is December 31, 2024.

RenovaBio: ANP publishes proof of individual 2023 targets for fuel distributors

On April 04, 2024, the ANP announced the conclusion on the verification of the compliance with the mandatory individual emission reduction targets for 2023, within the scope of RenovaBio. Overall, 33.1 million CBIOs were withdrawn from circulation, corresponding to 81% of the individual targets, and 88% of the global target for 2023. The 2023 individual targets, which amounted to 40.9 million CBIOs, were calculated based on the mandatory annual target and added to the 2022 targets not met.

According to the data provided by the ANP, of the 145 distributors with targets for 2023, 74 fully met the target, 7 met at least 85% of the target, 9 met less than 85% of the target and 55 did not meet the target at all. Failure to meet the target will result in fines and other sanctions, and the amount of unmet CBIOs will be added to the next year’s target. By March 31, 2024, 2.3 million CBIOs for the 2024 targets have already been withdrawn from circulation. The deadline for meeting the 2024 targets ends on December 31, 2024.
