Unifying vision and technology Petrobras's approach to AI and automation across departments.

Petrobras welcomed a new CIO, embracing the fresh perspective that accompanied the leadership change. The new CIO, an Intelligent Automation enthusiast and avid AI user, identified evident disparities in the deployment of advanced automation and generative AI technologies across departments. While the operations department fully embraced automation and generative AI, the corporate departments hesitated.

Seeking opportunities to expand these technologies across HR, finance, procurement, and tax departments, Petrobras recognized the Tax department as a prime use case candidate, considering its annual payment of $54 billion. Acknowledging the struggle to adhere to the 150 pages of tax rules and regulations, the tax department became a focal point for automation and generative AI integration.

Processes automated.

  • Operational procedures
  • Determining the taxable base (based on transactions, freight, and misc. charges)
  • Calculating tax incentives and exemptions per region and sector
  • Calculating ICMS tax rates per Brazilian state
  • Determining tax responsibilities for interstate transactions
  • Filing ICMS, IPI, ISS, COFINS, PIS taxes

Customer overview.

Petrobras is a technology-forward South American energy company with 45,000+ employees and 70 years of experience in ultra-deepwater oil and gas exploration.
