BRASILIA, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Chief Executive Officer of Brazil's Petrobras, Aldemir Bendine, said on Monday he is confident Murilo Ferreira will return as chairman of the embattled state-run oil company.
Ferreira took a leave of absence earlier in September to dedicate his full attention to his job as CEO of mining company Vale.
After a meeting with lawmakers in Brasilia, Bendine also said it was not the right time to discuss changes to the country's oil exploration model. (Reporting by Leonardo Goy; Editing by Chris Reese; Writing by Alonso Soto)
