BRASILIA Feb 3 (Reuters) - Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and the chief executive of Petrobras met on Tuesday, but did not come to a conclusion about the CEO's possible exit from the scandal-tainted state oil company, a presidential spokesman said on Tuesday.

Shares of state-run Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is known, soared by 15 percent in Tuesday trading after a local newspaper reported that Rousseff had decided to replace Maria das Graças Foster as CEO. (Reporting by Luciana Otoni)
