Brazil's Petrobras to divest deep-water Sergipe-Alagoas assets

SAO PAULO, May 23 (Reuters) - Brazil’s state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA on Wednesday said it would start receiving proposals for certain deep-water assets in the Sergipe-Alagoas basin as part of a divestment program aimed at bringing down debt levels.

Petrobras, as the firm is known, said in a securities filing it would sell stakes of between 20 percent and 50 percent in four blocks in the area, transferring rights to explore, develop and produce oil.

In a separate filing on Wednesday, Petrobras said it had extended the deadline to receive bids related to its Tartaruga Verde, Módulo III of Espadarte, and Baúna fields, without providing additional details.
