Brazil refuses to grant license for controversial offshore oil drilling project


Brazil’s environmental regulator has refused to grant a license for a controversial offshore oil drilling project near the mouth of the Amazon River

The agency’s president highlighted environmental concerns in announcing the decision to reject the state-run oil company Petrobras’ request to drill the FZA-M-59 block. The unique and biodiverse area is home to little-studied swaths of mangroves and a coral reef.
