President of South American Energy Company Speaks on Sustainability

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - Alberto Guimarães, President, Petrobras America, will deliver the address "Petrobras - A Case of Business Sustainability," on May 15, 2008 at The Regency Club. Angelenos have the opportunity to ask Guimarães about where future energy sources will come from.

Petrobras America Inc. was incorporated in 1987 in the United States. Its mission is to provide quality service and products, pursue shareholders' best interests, and show social and environmental responsibility in the US oil and gas industry. In March, Petrobras was the highest bidder for 22 blocks in the US Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale. Petrobras' Strategic Plan calls for international growth through investments made in priority areas such as the American sector of the Gulf of Mexico.

Prior to his current position, Guimarães served as the CEO of Petrobras Energia SA, which operates in six Latin American countries. He was also the Executive Manager for Business Development in Petrobras, where he headed the $3.2 billion acquisition of Argentina's Perez Companc control, which became Petrobras Energia SA.
