Brazil's National Petroleum Industry Organization (Onip) and the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex) are in the process of finding foreign businesses interested in forming joint ventures with Brazilian companies that supply products to the oil industry.

The two organizations embarked in a project in mid-last year in a bid to foster said ventures and thus increase domestic availability of oil and gas industry supplies.

According to the Onip superintendent in charge of the project, Bruno Musso, 21 Brazilian companies have been selected to participate.

An action targeting their foreign counterparts will take place next month at Offshore Europe, an exhibition running from September 8th to 11th in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The week after the exhibition, the Brazilian project's managers will meet with British executives to talk.

Overall, seven overseas canvassing actions are scheduled, according to Musso. Not all of the meetings will be linked to exhibitions; some will be dedicated trips or missions.

Three other actions will be held in Europe, two in North America, probably in the United States, and one in Asia. Regarding the latter, Onip and Apex-Brasil are primarily looking for know-how in ship parts.
