Statoil has blamed a “technical glitch” for a press release on Tuesday that appeared to claim that the company had been awarded offshore blocks in Brazil.

“There is no news from Statoil regarding Brazil,” said the company in a statement on Wednesday.

Statoil has prequalified for Brazil’s 15th bid round, which takes place on Thursday.
