Mauro Luiz Soares Zamprogno shares an article about Oil and Gas in Brazil. Brazil is a major producer of oil, our country has a great territorial extension and therefore more chance of finding oil.

In the second place we have the status of the HOLY SPIRIT, of course he does not come near Rio, but nevertheless he wins from the other producing states. His would do of the national production is of 15%, that is, almost nothing left for the other states. The number of barrels produced increases each year.
