Petrobras’ preferred shares (PETR4) closed up 2.58%, quoted at R$37.65, at the end of trading this Tuesday (2). With today’s rise, the oil company’s shares accumulate gains of 3.7% in 2024.

The oil company’s shares followed the new appreciation in the price of the oil futures contract, driven by buyers’ concerns about the escalation of violence in the Middle East and Ukraine. News that Israel had sought to expand its military operations area raised fears for the energy market.

The day before, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said the government would take action in response to the Israeli attack on Iran’s consulate in Damascus, Syria, which intensified concerns about the possibility of a reduction in the supply of Iranian oil.
