It's been a wild ride for investors in Petrobras (NYSE: PBR  ) . The state run oil company of Brazil still spends a lot of time answering to the government. Hopefully, though, meaningful growth is upon the horizon. With the help of companies like Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-A  ) and Total SA (NYSE: TOT  ) , the company is aiming to raise production 160% by the end of the decade. If this holds true, companies that have built close relationships with Petrobras, like FMC Technologies (NYSE: FTI  ) could be in for a big payday, given PBR's plans to spend $237 billion on its expansion plans.

In the following video, Motley Fool analyst Taylor Muckerman, walks us through a couple of key dates on the timeline that investors should be cognizant of. Tune in below.
