RIO DE JANEIRO Jan 15 Brazil's Petroleo Brasileiro SA will only seek new capital from the Brazilian government as a last resort and that no such bailout is under consideration for the heavily indebted state-led oil company, Chief Financial Officer Ivan Monteiro told reporters on Friday.
Petrobras, as the company is known, understands the challenge of selling $15 billion of assets to reduce debt and limit new investment cuts, but is confident the company will reach its goal by year-end, Monteiro said.
