One of the most important actions made possible by investments in R&D is the North Coast Project. Developed on the Brazilian Equatorial Margin, between the states of Maranhão, Pará and Amapá, the initiative had the main objective of determining the vulnerability, sensitivity and susceptibility to pollutant contamination in the mangroves located in the Foz do Amazonas and Pará-Maranhão Basins – where we have three exploration assets in the licensing phase.
With a five-year duration and investments of R$ 14.2 million, the North Coast Project generated an extensive database for research in the Foz do Amazonas and Pará-Maranhão Basins
We invested R$ 1.3 million to assess the contribution of mangroves, one of the largest natural carbon reserves, so as to mitigate the effects of climate change
We aldo made a partnership with the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) to conduct an R&D project to assess the contribution of Rio de Janeiro's mangroves to mitigate global warming. The research aims to determine the carbon stock stored in these ecosystems in the state and to show the relevance of coastal Conservation Units in order to maintain this stored quantity.
