RIO DE JANEIRO Oct 17 Brazil's oil regulator
ANP will extinguish about 350 rules in 2016 as part of efforts
to attract investment to Brazil by simplifying regulations after
a fall in world oil prices, the agency's outgoing chief Magda
Chambriard said on Monday.
In an interview with Reuters she also said the planned sale
of the unleased portion of the giant Carcara oil discovery will
occur in 2017. The unleased area contains about the same amount
of oil and gas as the already leased portion owned by a group
led by Norway's Statoil ASA.
