With current Exploration and Production operations of an enormous scale, Brazil is reassessing its "Proven Reserves" year after year.
The investment plan set in motion by the underwater "pre-sal" finds summons investments and demand for technology on an unprecedented scale.

The country is also a key player in renewable sources, with Itaipu Binacional - one of the planet's largest Hydro-electric generation plants – aside of a dense network of "Mini-Hydro" units, a first-class biofuel industry and strong investment growth in wind and solar installations.

The energy market, liberalized in the late '90s, includes continental giants in size, but also a network of companies, listed or not – some of them with high vitality and profitability.

Nevertheless, a growing demand for energy often outstrips supply and blackouts are still frequent especially in large metropolitan. Two upcoming global commitments – the Football World Cup in 2014 and Olympics in '16 – with all the infrastructure development they attract, imply an even greater stress on energy infrastructure.

The Country is gearing up for the challenges of present and future: it offers many important opportunities for new entrants who can provide technology and service capabilities.
