MANAGEMENT REPORT
To the shareholders of HRT,
HRT ended the first quarter of 2014 with a cash position and liquidity of R$308, almost the double of the
figure posted at the close of the previous quarter. With the completion of the purchase of a 60%
participating interest in the Polvo Field, which ANP approved in December 2013, HRT became the
operator of the field as from January 2014, and in the first quarter of the year produced a total of 480
thousand barrels (net HRT). The Company concluded two crude oil offtakes during the quarter, with the
sale of approximately 630 thousand barrels of oil (net HRT). With these two sales, HRT can announce, for
the first time, net operating revenues of R$143 million, EBITDA of R$36 million, and net income of R$1.7
million, all consolidated results. These financial results justify in quantitative terms our confidence that we
would obtain positive results, since we started talking to BP at the beginning of 2012, when we decided to
consider this opportunity. The commercial transaction with BP involved a long and complex process, and
we had a long wait for ANP’s approval for the transfer of the operatorship. However, as mentioned before,
we were always optimistic due to the certainty that this deal was a business opportunity for the Company
to generate value for shareholders. Moreover, since January 2014, we have started to reap the rewards of
the hard work and study that the HRT team has put into closing this deal.
The first quarter of 2014 and the months coming after have seen major adjustments in the Company’s
management structure. New Officers have been appointed, who will contribute to the soundness of our
Organizational Management, Corporate Governance and Business Development. New members have been
elected to the Board of Directors and the Fiscal Council, and overall compensation for 2014 has been cut
to R$9.8 million, some 78% less than the aggregate amount approved by the shareholders for the previous
year.
We are convinced that, under the guidance of the Board of Directors and the current Executive Board, and
with the support of all our staff, we will continue the work of transforming HRT into a prominent Brazilian
producer of oil and gas, with continuous growth targets. In parallel, we continue to seek new opportunities
for investments in production assets, putting priority on finding new partners for our exploration assets.
The initiatives we introduced to cut costs and protect the Company’s cash led to a fall of approximately
83% in personnel expenses, 42% in recurring expenses, and we have not stopped there. Studies are
underway and measures are still to be taken to reduce even further the Company’s corporate costs and
the Polvo Field operating costs.
As of now, we are pleased to announce HRT’s first positive operating outcome from the oil production;
and we reiterate our commitment to go on developing HRT, strengthening its financial position, managing
properly its risks and constantly seeking new business opportunities.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
At the beginning of the first quarter of 2014, the HRT’s management called a Special Shareholders’
Meeting (“SSM”) to fill rapidly the vacancies on the Fiscal Council and the Board of Directors.
Accordingly, in March 2014, the shareholders attending the SSM approved a reduction in the number of
members of the Board of Directors from eleven (11) to seven (7), the election of the Board members,
proposed by the HRT’s management, including the Chairman, Mr Helio Costa, and the Deputy Chairman,
Mr Vinicius Carrasco, as well as the election of new members of the Fiscal Council.
At a meeting held on March 27, 2014, the new Board of Directors appointed Mr Eduardo Larangeira
Jácome as the Organizational Management and Investor Relations Officer, and Mr José Carlos de Araújo
Pedrosa as the Chief Business Development Officer for the Company, to reinforce the Company`s
activities related to Organizational Management, Corporate Governance and Business Development.
On April 22, the Board of Directors decided to suppress the position of Chief Technical Officer of HRT. In
light of this resolution, the CEO of HRT, Milton Romeu Franke, accumulated the CTO functions and the
position of CEO of the subsidiary HRT O&G Exploração e Produção de Petróleo Ltda., with the supervision
of the Exploration and Production technical areas.
On April 30, 2014, the Company held its Annual Shareholders’ Meeting (“ASM”) and the following matters
on the agenda were approved by a majority of the shareholders in attendance:
i.
The Management accounts, Annual Management Report, Company Financial Statements and the
Opinion of the Independent Auditors for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013;
ii.
The allocation of the loss for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, to the accumulated losses
account, as Management Proposal;
iii.
The establishment of the overall annual compensation of the Company’s senior managers at up to
R$9.8 million, to be distributed by the Board of Directors among all the members of the Company’s
management;
iv.
The installation of the Company’s Fiscal Council for the current fiscal year, to remain in operation
until the date of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to consider the accounts for the fiscal year ending
December 31, 2014;
v.
The election, with a term of office ending on the date of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to
consider the accounts for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014, of Messrs Elias de Matos Brito,
Roberto Portella and Gilberto Braga, as sitting members of the Board of Directors, and Ronaldo dos
Santos Machado, Anderson dos Santos Amorim and Luiz Alberto Pereira de Matos as alternate members;
and
vi.
The establishment of the compensation of the Fiscal Council members at the minimum legal limit.
In 2014 to date, the Board of Directors and the Executive Board endeavored to seek solutions for issues
involving former members of the Fiscal Council and the Board of Directors of the Company, and
determined a set of agreements submitted to the necessary approvals at the Shareholders’ Meeting and
the Board of Directors’ Meeting. Thus, all lawsuits and arbitration proceedings have been or will be
suspended. HRT is thus free of conflicts in the scope of Corporate Governance, and we are confident that
the new Management, now that the newly elected members of the Board of Directors and the Fiscal
Council have taken office, is fully aligned with the aim of achieving all the targets set for this year and the
years to come.

HRT GROUP COMPANIES – 1Q14 HIGHLIGHTS AND
SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
HRT OIL & GAS
SOLIMÕES
■ HIGHLIGHTS
On March 21, 2014, final agreements were signed for the assignment of a 6% participating interest in the
Solimões Blocks to Rosneft Brasil, in line with the preliminary agreement signed in November 2013.
At the beginning of April 2014, HRT initiated the process to obtain ANP’s approval in respect of the
mentioned transfer. Once ANP’s approval has been given, Rosneft will be the operator with 51%
participating interest, and HRT will be its partner with a 49% participating interest in the Solimões Basin
concessions.
The total amount of the transaction was US$96 million, of which:
•
•
•
US$54 million were received in the fourth quarter of 2013;
US$18 million were received in the first quarter of 2014; and
The balance of US$24 million will be paid when ANP approves the transfer.
The total of US$96 million relates to the sale of a 6% participating interest, and the transfer of the
operation of the Joint Venture in the Solimões Sedimentary Basin to Rosneft, the sale of four helitransportable drilling rigs and the settlement of cash calls by Rosneft outstanding up to October 2013.
There was also an agreement for a loan of up to US$40 million to be granted by Rosneft to HRT to finance
its investments in Solimões, for a period of 12 months from the completion of the transaction with the
ANP’s approval.
The transition process between the teams of both companies has been started and HRT and Rosneft Brasil
are working on finalizing the process, with the transfer of HRT staff and operations to Rosneft Brasil. The
intention is that this will be a continuous and seamless process, observing the standards of safety,
efficiency and quality.
During the quarter, HRT submitted seven (7) discovery evaluation plans (PADs) regarding the natural gas
to ANP, including work plans and planned investments. These evaluation plans are now under discussion.
At the same period, HRT submitted to ANP a request for an extension of the exploration phase of blocks
SOL-T-195, SOL-T-148 and SOL-T-149. The regulatory agency is still analyzing such application.
■
NEXT STEPS
In respect of the natural gas monetization project, HRT and Rosneft are in discussions with companies
interested in a share in the business, and with the Federal Government about alternative uses for the

Release
natural gas discovered in the Solimões Basin. These discussions are based on the results of studies carried
out jointly with Petrobras, giving priority to the options involving its conversion into LNG and electric
power generation, both of which are inputs deemed fundamental to the development of the region and
the country.
POLVO
■ HIGHLIGHTS
At the beginning of January 2014, HRT and BP Energy do Brasil Ltda (“BP”) completed the commercial
transaction for the acquisition of a 60% participating interest in the Polvo Field.
Payment was made by HRT, on the same date, in the amount of US$101 million (including the US$13.5
million paid at the time of signing the PSA in May 2013), which includes certain payments required under
the PSA. BP’s preliminary operating result from the field in 2013 was US$67 million (corresponding to the
60% stake). The parties are reviewing this result, the final price for the transaction must be determined by
the end of 2Q14, in accordance with the criteria and terms set forth in the PSA.
On that occasion, HRT took over the stocks of oil produced and not yet off taken, stored in the FPSO,
amounting to 270 thousand barrels, and the cash balance held by the Joint Venture. The field produced a
total of approximately 4.2 million barrels of oil in 2013.
In February 2014, HRT decided to make the early payment of the outstanding balance of the loan obtained
with Credit Suisse in May 2013, to acquire a 60% participating interest in the Polvo Field, in order to
release a set of guarantees and material liabilities linked to the financing agreement, mainly related to cash
and receivable ratios, which were directly affecting liquidity. The original amount of the loan was US$75
million. The first amortization, amounting to US$40 million, was made on October 15, 2013. Thus, in the
first quarter of 2014, HRT freed itself from all liabilities under loans and/or financing and guarantees that
restricted its liquidity.
The field produced a total of approximately 901 thousand barrels of oil (100%) in the first quarter of 2014,
producing 1,218 thousand barrels of oil (100%) until April 2014. The natural gas produced, amounting to 30
thousand cubic meters per day, is fully used as fuel for the field operations. HRT is currently the sixth
largest operator of oil fields in Brazil, or seventh if gas production is included.
In the first quarter of 2014, HRT also concluded two crude oil offtakes from the Polvo Field, with an
approximate total volume of 630 thousand barrels of oil (net HRT). The average discount on Brent prices
was about 10%, taking into account the market conditions and the type of oil from the Polvo Field.
HRT generated net operating revenues of R$141 million in 1Q14 from the sale of these crude oil shipments.

In mid-February 2014, HRT carried out a preventive stoppage of wells POL-001, POL-002 and POL-004,
due to the low efficiency of the wellstream cooler. At the end of February, HRT suspended production in
the field to repair the wellstream cooler located on the outside of the platform. Production was resumed
after 8 days, once the referred equipment had been repaired. At the end of March, the seawater lift pump
in well POL-011 failed and had to be repaired. Operations at this well were resumed at the beginning of
April. This was the first intervention conducted by HRT in a well that had ceased production. The rig on

board the Polvo platform was used, and the operation, which was a total success, took only 11 days from
start to finish, without incidents nor indirect costs.
HRT thus entered the second quarter of 2014 with all 10 productive wells in the Polvo Field working
normally, with average production of between 10.5 and 11 thousand barrels per day.
■
NEXT STEPS
HRT anticipates that the third shipment, of approximately 600 thousand barrels, will be completed late
May or early June 2014.
The increase in the frequency of oil sales and the corresponding increase in the volume of shipments sold
is the result of optimization of the sale process, which has been introduced by HRT. Larger shipments
mean lower costs and better usage of the FPSO to store the oil produced. In addition, we are expecting
better final prices for oil sales, with lower discounts on the Brent price, partly as a result of the increase in
volumes.
HRT AFRICA
NAMIBIA
■ HIGHLIGHTS
In September 2013, Tullow Oil, a European E&P company, farmed in a 65% stake of Pancontinental, located
in Walvis Basin, in a block adjacent to the Petroleum Exploration License (“PEL”) where HRT drilled the
Wingat-1 well. Tullow Oil announced that it estimates an investment of up to US$130 million in 2D and 3D
seismic acquisition, and in the identification of a prospect to be drilled. The weekly magazine Upstream
also reported that Tullow Oil intends to start developing the Kudu Field, of which it is the operator.
At the end of April 2014, the Spanish company Repsol started drilling the Welwitschia-1 well, in Walvis
Basin, at a distance of about 200 km to the north of HRT’s Wingat-1 well. Welwitschia-1 will intercept up to
five target reservoirs ranging from the Paleocene-Maastrichtian to the Albian Carbonate, with a total
depth (TD) estimated at 3000 m. Repsol estimates that it will take up to 46 days to complete the drilling.
The government of Namibia has given permission to the US company Murphy Oil to explore two blocks in
the Lüderitz Basin. Murphy Oil plans to start drilling in 2015 or 2016.
Finally, Shell has signed a concession agreement with the South African government for the block
immediately to the south of HRT PEL-28.
All these activities demonstrate the industry growing interest in the region where HRT owns 10 blocks
over an area that exceeds 53,000 km2.
■
NEXT STEPS
In view of the interest of oil companies in the Namibian assets, three international oil conventions are to be
held in Windhoek, the country’s capital, in 2014. Representatives of HRT will take part in these events, with
a view to initiating negotiations for future operations in its license areas, and to pursue the data room
process in HRT America’s office in Houston, in the USA, where information related to seismic surveys and
drillings carried out so far is kept.

(In thousands of R$)
The EBITDA for 1Q14 was positive at R$35.8 million, an increase of R$133.4 million, when compared to the
same period of last year, representing a consolidated EBITDA margin of 25%. The positive impact is mainly
explained by the oil sale margin during the period, representing a Gross Profit of R$46 million and a
change of R$89 million in Operating Expenses, representing a decrease of 90%, against the previous
period.
The Personnel Expenses had a decrease of 83%, due to a significant reduction in the Company’s
headcount in approximately 50%. It is also worth mentioning that, in 1Q13, 100% of Personnel expenses
were allocated to HRT, due to the cash calls, provide for the Joint Operating Agreement (JOA) with
Rosneft. Personnel expenses for 1Q14 are net of the amount allocated to the Polvo and Solimões projects,
different from what happened in the same period of the last year. Moreover, it is worth mentioning the
recognition made, in 1Q13, of expenses relating to share-based bonuses granted to employees in January
2013, in the amount of R$20 million, nonrecurring in 2014. Under the international financial reporting
standards, any difference between acquisition cost and market value must be recognized on the grant
date, although only 3% of the shares have been exercised.
In light of the nonexistence of well drillings in 2014, general and administrative expenses were not
capitalized, which explains the negative change in this line item, particularly to expenses arising from

maintenance of the structure of Solimões. The focus on cost reduction had a positive effect on third-party
services, which together with the cash calls from partners in the project, represented a decrease of 83%.
Depreciation/Amortization line was impacted by the start of HRT operations in the Polvo Field. Of the
total of R$25 million in consolidated depreciation and amortization, R$22 million relate to amortization of
amounts preliminarily allocated as bonus and Polvo abandonment costs.
The financial result of 2014 was impacted by finance charges regarding the loan taken from Credit Suisse
in May 2013 for the acquisition of a 60% participating interest from BP in the Polvo Field. Such loan was
settled on February 21, 2014, and costs related to the early full payment were recognized in the quarter.

the available cash. As for the existing funds in escrow accounts on December 31, 2013, they were used to

Disbursement of R$161 million resulting from the acquisition of BP’s 60% participating interest in the Polvo
Field; (ii) early settlement of the debit balance, approximately R$96 million, for the loan with the Credit
Suisse Bank to acquire the interests in the Polvo Filed; (iii) revenues of R$135 million from sales of oil
produced in the Polvo Field; (iv) R$60 million received from partners relating to Cash Calls from
Exploration and Production (E&P) Oil Campaigns; (v) revenues of R$41 million related to the second

(In millions of R$)
Operating costs of R$92 million as of March 31, 2014 , which represents a 47% decrease against 2013, refer
to disbursements for exploration, production and logistics activities (air, fluvial and land), as well as
personnel expenses and third-party services, directly related to the project.
Disbursements for seismic (G&G) activities, totalling R$7 million, are related to exploration activities in
Solimões, Namibia and Polvo, and include seismic data survey, processing and acquisition services, and
showed a 79% decrease, against the amount of R$34 million for the same period in 2013, mainly reflecting
a reduced work program for the Solimões and Namibia projects.
General and administrative expenses, in the total amount of R$11 million at the end of the period 2014,
decreased 56%, against the same period in 2013. They include financial expenses and exchange rate
variations, and are related to personnel expenses, third-party services and general and administrative
expenses not directly allocated to the exploratory campaign, but incurred to support the development of
the Group’s operational activities.
Nonrecurring disbursements amounting to R$257 million at the end of 1Q14 increased significantly in
relation to the amount of R$4 million in 2013, as they take into account disbursements related to the
acquisition of the Polvo Field, and the early full payment of the loan with Credit Suisse.
