of a new year it seems only right that we take a look at some of the ‘new frontiers’ in the oil and gas industry, as our cover story for this issue highlights. The energy industry in South America has been steadily growing for some time, with Brazil being the focal point of much industry activity. While many will rightly note that oil and gas in Brazil has been discussed for some time now (since the large pre-salt discoveries in 2007), our lead feature this issue takes a closer look at the sector, examining the reasons why Brazil offers a wealth of exciting opportunities. “Brazil is now officially on the world map as an oil exporter, following the tradition of other Latin American nations such as Venezuela and Mexico,” says Gabriela Castro-Fontoura of Sunny Sky Solutions, on page four. As we discover, with proven reserves of well over 15 billion barrels of oil offshore, Brazil is becoming a difficult market to ignore. Of course, there are challenges - pre-salt is notoriously difficult to extract from, and Petrobras’ stranglehold of the market makes it a complicated place to work. However, with the 2014 FIFA World Cup taking place in the country and the allure of the 2016 Olympic Games as well, all eyes are on Brazil. Perhaps its time yours should be too?
