LISBON, April 27 (Reuters) - Portugal’s Galp Energia does not expect major changes to its projects in Brazil involving Petrobras after a corruption scandal at the Brazilian state oil giant, Galp’s new CEO, Carlos Gomes da Silva, said on Monday.
Petrobras’ took a massive $17 billion write-down to account for overvalued assets and corruption-related costs in its long-delayed 2014 results last week.
“Petrobras has only presented final results for 2014, I think their updated strategy will be presented in the next two months. But we do not expect for now major changes in the areas where Galp is involved, especially BMS-11 which is critical for us ... and is critical for Petrobras,” he told reporters.
