Record 16 companies register for Brazil pre-salt oil auction -ANP

RIO DE JANEIRO, May 10 (Reuters) - A record 16 oil companies, including heavyweights like Royal Dutch Shell Plc , have registered to participate in the so-called fourth round of bidding for stakes in Brazil’s coveted pre-salt layer, oil regulator ANP said on Thursday.

American firms Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp , Norway’s Statoil and France’s Total SA are also registered for the June auction of blocks in the offshore play, where billions of barrels of oil are trapped under a thick layer of salt below the ocean floor.
