Finally! Petrobras Has Something Go Its Way

Petrobras (NYSE: PBR  ) has its fair share of issues, but the recent bid for the Libra field is something that Petrobras and its investors should be happy about for a couple of reasons. One is that the consortium of companies working on the project includes both Total (NYSE: TOT  ) and Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A  ) . This will be extremely important for Petrobras because both Total and Shell have extensive experience exploring geology similar to the Brazilian pre-salt formations in West Africa.
