SAO PAULO U.S. oil company Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) expressed to Brazil’s state-controlled firm Petrobras (PETR4.SA) “strong interest” in the exploration of deep-water pre-salt oil fields off the Brazilian coast, Petrobras Chief Executive Officer Pedro Parente said on Tuesday.


“Considering movements towards a strategic partnership, we have nothing concrete with Exxon, but they have certainly expressed strong interest in the Brazilian pre-salt exploration,” Parente told reporters.
