"It seems to be accidental", said the person familiar with the Petrobras study, who requested anonymity because the report is not public.

State-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro said on Monday that molecular tests on the organic material in samples of the crude oil showed that they are not compatible with the oils produced and sold by the company. He also said there was no plan to privatize Petrobras, and that Brazil's Amazon states have great exploration potential, with mining a possible source of income.
