Business Area 

  • Development of oil and gas exploration/production projects
  • Development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects
  • Development of sugarcane bio-ethanol projects
  • Development of other business related to the environment
  • Trading in oil and its derivatives
  • Development of renewable energy projects
  • Development of cogeneration projects
  • Feasibility study for the development of carbon and hydrogen capture, utilization and storage projects

Brazil's importance as an oil-producing country increased after the discovery of a pre-salt reserve and the development of its fields. Approximately 30% of all pre-salt oil and gas is processed by offshore units with Mitsui's participation. We continue to seek the development of projects related to oil and gas in order to collaborate with the development of the country's sector. We also develop projects related to natural gas and seek opportunities for other businesses such as solar, wind, biomass and hydrogen. In this way, we focus to improve our portfolio of energy resources around the world, increasing our participation in projects aimed at renewable energy.

With its vast territory and adequate weather conditions, we believe that Brazil is one of the most competitive countries for renewable energy and, together with local and international partners, Mitsui will continue its journey in developing these sectors.
