Splenda wins Petrobras bid and takes over Port of Imbetiba

Splenda Port won a bid from oil giant Petrobras and will operate from this month the Port of Imbetiba, in Macaé, an oil-and-gas town in Rio de Janeiro. The contract marks the company’s new move to expand in logistic support to the activities of oil and gas after taking over the concession of the Port Terminal of Angra dos Reis (TPAR) earlier this year. Founded in 2017, Splenda has R$25 million of capital. Paulo Narcélio, a former president of OGX, is the main partner. He told Valor that the intention is to seek a new strategic or financial partner in the future to back investments in the company’s expansion. The company has signed a 42-month contract with Petrobras to provide port operation services in Imbetiba. The unit provides support to the state-owned company’s exploration and production activities in the Campos Basin.
