Research and Markets: Brazil Energy Report - Brazil's 6.6% Increase in Primary Energy Production Pushed Latin America's Overall Growth Rate Up By 2%.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3f7554/brazil_energy_repo) has announced the addition of the "Brazil Energy Report" report to their offering.

This report provides updated facts and figures on the evolution of the national energy market. For the oil, gas, coal and power markets, the report details the market organisation, institutions regulating the market, and energy policy of the country. Energy companies active on the market are analysed. Domestic production, capacities, exchanges, consumption by sector and market shares are provided. Energy prices levels and taxes are described. Finally, the driving issues, and the market prospects are proposed.

New legislation allows foreign oil companies to participate in new bids without Petrobras. New LNG export terminals are associated with the new oil producing areas; although a net gas importer, Brazil also develops LNG import terminals. Several GW of hydro power are completing construction in the coming years, with more to follow.

Brazil's 6.6% increase in primary energy production pushed Latin America's overall growth rate up by 2%. The country was also the key driver in imports of refined oil products (Brazilian imports shoot up 70%) resulting in a deeper trade deficit for the whole region. At the end of the year, Latin America accounted for 13% of the overall increase in consumption of refined oil products.
