Regarding the news published today by the press, Petrobras clarifies that there was no change in natural gas pricing policy. Prices are set according to current contracts. Rebates on the value established in these agreements will be reduced gradually until the end of 2015 and do not affect the gas price formula provided in the contracts, remaining therefore unchanged all existing contracts. This measure aims to restore the alignment of relative prices of energy, preserving, however, the competitiveness of natural gas in the market.
