Petrobras on letter from the Ministry of Mines and Energy

Rio de Janeiro, May 23, 2022 - Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. - Petrobras informs that it received today a letter from the Ministry of Mines and Energy, requesting measures in order to call an Extraordinary General Meeting, with the purpose of promoting the removal and election of a member of the Board of Directors, and appointing Caio Mario Paes de Andrade, to replace José Mauro Ferreira Coelho.


The letter also requests that Caio Mario Paes de Andrade be subsequently evaluated by the Petrobras Board of Directors for the position of CEO.


Considering that Mr. José Mauro Ferreira Coelho was elected by the multiple vote system in the Annual General Meeting held on 04/13/2022, if approved by the General Meeting, his dismissal will imply the dismissal of the other members of the Board elected by the same process, and the company must hold a new election for these positions, under the terms of article 141, paragraph 3, of Law 6,404/76.


Petrobras informs that new material facts will be timely disclosed to the market.
