Brazil only gets bid from Shell for its pre-salt oil -source

RIO DE JANEIRO, May 24 (Reuters) - An auction of oil by the Brazilian government from coveted offshore pre-salt fields has only attracted the interest of one bidder, Royal Dutch Shell Plc , a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

The auction, scheduled for May 30, is the first time the government will sell its share of oil in the pre-salt, where billions of barrels of crude are trapped beneath a thick layer of salt under the ocean floor.

Shell did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Luciano Costa Writing by Alexandra Alper, Editing by Rosalba O’Brien)
