Bolsonaro changes Petrobras president and puts general in office – Petroleum

The Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro, announced today an exchange in the presidency of the state-owned oil company Petrobras, putting General Joaquim Silva e Luna in charge, at a time of controversy about the increase in fuel prices in the country.

“The Government has decided to appoint Mr. Joaquim Silva e Luna to fulfill a new mission, as a board member and president of Petrobras, after the end of the cycle, over two years, of the current president, Mr. Roberto Castello Branco,” said Bolsonaro at Twitter social network.

On Thursday, the head of state had already said that “something was going to happen” at the largest company in the country, but without giving details.
