    Petrobras asks court to lift ban on Swiss rig supplier and Chevron

    The Brazilian energy giant depends heavily on the two companies

    Brazilian energy giant Petrobras on Friday asked a Rio do Janeiro court to lift a ban on operations of rig owner Transocean in connection with a major ocean oil spill last year. The company filed a civil action as “injured third party” to press for the immediate lifting of a July 31 injunction ordering US oil firm Chevron and Switzerland-based Transocean to stop drilling and shipping activities in Brazil within 30 days.
