This paper discusses the new possibilities that exploration of oil from the Pré-sal reserves open to the Brazilian economy, which could become one of the largest oil producer and exporter. Three key aspects are discussed in the paper. First, the role played by Petrobras and its ambiguous position as a firm that seeks profits but which is at the same time an instrument of the energy policy of the Brazilian government. The second is the emergence of a debate on the legislation and rules that would be in place to organize oil exploration and distribute its benefits to the whole society. Thirdly, it addresses the forms and viability of oil exploration in these conditions. The paper thus aims to discuss whether the Pré-sal could effectively produce benefits to the Brazilian society.
