Petrobras expects to make first Amazon mouth drill in 2024.


Brazilian state-run oil company Petrobras plans to conduct its first drilling near the Amazon River's mouth in 2024, pending clearance from the local environment protection agency Ibama. The company is halfway to obtaining the license, and Ibama, which rejected Petrobras' bid, is expected to make a decision on the oil giant's appeal by early 2024.

        The Amazon rainforest plays a crucial role in climate regulation and biodiversity. Any exploration or extraction activities threaten its vital functions.

          The mouth of the Amazon River is a site of one of the largest Undersea Delta Canyons in the world - so a dangerous and ecologically important areas of high risk and high climatic sensitivity which scientists are still studying and understanding. No More New Fossil Fuel Extraction!

            @david_tannahill They should let the site be, because if they start drilling they will never stop.

              This is a great threat to the climate that might cause land degredation, water and air pollution. This must be stopped.

                Amazon forest should be protected by preventing the drilling of oil

                  Petrobras aims to conduct its inaugural drilling near the Amazon River's mouth in 2024, pending approval from Ibama. Despite Ibama's initial rejection of Petrobras' bid, the oil company is halfway toward obtaining the required license. The decision on Petrobras' appeal is anticipated by early 2024, highlighting ongoing environmental considerations and potential impacts on the Amazon region in the context of the fight against climate change

                    Did you know @BankofAmerica is one of the WORST banks when it comes to protecting global forests & forest communities? They provided $4.6 BILLION in credit to forest-risk sectors since 2016. Among their top clients are deforesters JBS and @Cargill. More: forestsandfinance.org/banking-on-bio…

                      Venturing more into oil industry means encouraging the use of fossil fuels that has more harm to climate.This shows bad intentions towards transition to clean and renewable energy

                            Drilling in such ecologically sensitive areas poses potential risks.

                              @princess_nel_268 this drilling is not good for the environment and must be stopped by all means.
