Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to attend the Deepwater South America 2020 event, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during January 16-17, 2020.

South America is among the world’s most promising deepwater regions. Good reservoir quality and improved upstream terms have combined with cost declines and firmer oil prices to spark enthusiasm for deep offshore oil exploration in South America. Opportunities are being offered in Brazil, Argentina, Guyana, Suriname, Uruguay, Falkland Islands and more.

Deepwater South America 2020 is the only deepwater event in South America to unveil latest Deepwater E&P auctions, updating ongoing and planned deepwater projects’ progress, introducing regulation, supply chain & innovative technology to accelerate project development, and providing the best platform for international community to network with regional governments, regulators, NOCs, operators and investors for future cooperation opportunities.

I look forward to your participation in Deepwater South America 2020.

Best regards,
