Ante da divulgação de resultados 3T14 de Petrobras (minha tradução)

(Reuters) – Petroleiro estatal Brazilian pode sofrer uma cobrança de R$ 52 million (US$ 20 billion) nos resultados do terceiro semestre para reduzir o valor de alguns bens, disse um blog da revista Veja.

O blog Mercados não blog especificou quais areas seriam alvejado pela depreciação, e disse que o Petrobras contratou Deloitte Consulting LLP para ajudar saber o “tamanho e abrangência” dos planejamentos.

O resultados do terceiro semestre, originalmente marcados para divulgação em novembro do ano passado, foram adiados na esteira de um inquérito sobre corrupção no estatal, e após PricewaterhouseCoopers recusou certificar as contas da empresa.

O valor do enfraquecimento fica 42% do valor de mercado de Petrobras (PETR4.SA)r cinco anos, além de um plano de $221 million revelado no último ano, embora avisou no dezembro que iria cortar custos.

Mais tarde, o Reuters no inglês avaliou o significado do relatório de hoje — disponível no site do SEC, chamao EDGAR. Eu traduzo logo depois.

Jan 28 (Reuters) – Brazil’s Petrobras released delayed unaudited third-quarter results on Wednesday, but the state-run oil company’s shares slumped as it left investors in the dark over the financial impact of a multibillion-dollar corruption scandal.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known, reported quarterly net profit slid 9.1 percent from the year-ago period to 3.09 billion reais ($1.20 billion). It postponed an initial plan to publish the results in November after a stream of corruption allegations snowballed into a nationwide scandal.

The much-anticipated results, however, did not include what investors most want to know: a rough estimate of how badly corruption over-valued the company’s assets. The state-owned oil company reversed an initial decision to include such writedowns under pressure from its chairman, who is close to Brazil’s ruling Workers’ Party, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told Reuters.

SÃO PAULO — As we prepare for a long drought that up until several weeks ago we were told not to worry about, Sabesp once again gets the worst of it in the public relations wars. It tries, for example, to underscore its «digitalness» [my phrase] by boasting of a Web-based database that tells you the schedule for water to be turned off in your neighborhood.

We live in Pinheiros, more or less, and can expect outages from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. I cannot for the life of me find data that would have been the perfect opportunity for a Google Map-based page — just a simple spreadsheet would do.

So, Sabesp has nothing to boast about.

Sabesp has also launched a public relations campaign — it is a very frequent advertiser on the radio and TV  — known as the Calculator of Dreams.

The use of this “calculator of dreams” on the Sabesp Web site to publicize the reduction in water pressure in the greater metro area has attracted criticism on the social networks.

Sabesp began divulging information last Friday, at the URL [X] … Critics on Twitter note the irony perceived by customers of the company, which would seem to be associating the reduction of pressure to “a dream.” I simply do not believe the Sabesp site announcing rationing of water as the way to realize a dream, as twitterers also said.

Officially,  Sabesp said it would not respond to commentaries on the social networks. The company explained that the sub-dominion alculadoradesonhos.sabesp.com.br is a section of the site where clients can consult the history of their consumption or use a tool that permits the user to calculate how much must be saved to buy a given “sonho do consumo” or “dream possession” — The author’s dream possessions are a Mini Cooper and a humidor full of cubanos and baianos, for example; Monte Paschoal Robusto is a particular favorite.

In short, Sabesp is as transparent as always, which is to say, not hardly at all. An explanation accompanying the rolling outage schedule treats the customer like a sucker:

Reducing pressure in the pipes is a technique commonly practised by sanitation companies to reduce the loss of water sources.

With the advancement of hydraulic equipment and data transmission, it is possible to accompany, in real time, the quantity of water used in a certain region, then remotely calibrate the pressure existing in the local pipe network in order to reduce the quantity of water lost to leakage and fraud.

Sabesp has applied this technique in the network that supplies the greater metro area since 1997,

As it happens, given the hotter, drier summer this year, and with water levels at the headwaters lower than during last winter, we must intensify this action in order to avoid exhausting the reservoirs and maintain water supply until normal rains return.

The company explained that the sub-dominion alculadoradesonhos.sabesp.com.br is a section of the site where clients can consult the history of their consumptions or use a tool that permits the user to calculate how much must be saved to buy a given “sonho do consumo” or “dream possession” — My dream possessions are a Mini Cooper and a humidor full of cubanos and baianos  for example.

In short, Sabesp is as transparent as always, which is to say, not hardly at all. An explanation accompanying the rolling outage schedule treats the customer like a sucker:

Reduction of pressure in water pipes is a technique and a common practice of sanitation companies to reduce water losses.

With advances in hydraulic equipment and data transmission, it is possible to track in real time the quanity of water use in a given region and remotely calibrate the existing pressure in the local network in order to reduce the amount of water lost to fraud and leakage.

Sabesp has been using this technology in the São Paulo Metro Area water supply since 1997.

Sabesp began divulging information last Friday, at the URL [X] … Critics on Twitter note the irony perceived by customers of the company, which would seem to be associating the reduction of pressure to “a dream.” I simply do not believe the Sabesp site announcing rationing of water as the way to realize a dream, twitterers said.

Officially,  Sabesp said it would not respond to commentaries on the social networks. The company explained that the sub-dominion calculadoradesonhos.sabesp.com.br is a section of the site where clients can consult the history of their consumptions or use a tool that permits the user to calculate how much must be saved to buy a given “sonho do consumo” or “dream possession” — My dream possessions are a Mini Cooper and a humidor full of cubanos and baianos  by the way.

In short, Sabesp is as transparent as always, which is to say, not hardly at all. An explanation accompanying the rolling outage schedule treats the customer like a sucker:

Reduction of pressure in water pipes is a technique and a common practice of sanitation companies to reduce water losses.

With advances in hydraulic equipment and data transmission, it is possible to track in real time the quanity of water use in a given region and remotely calibrate the existing pressure in the local network in order to reduce the amount of water lost to fraud and leakage.

Sabesp has been using this technology in the São Paulo Metro Area water supply since 1997.

As it happens, with a dry, hot summer upon us, compared with recent years, and water levels falling at the headwaters … it is absolutely necessary to intensify this action to avoid the complete exhaustion of the reservoirs until the normal rains return.

SÃO PAULO — As we prepare for a long drought that up until several weeks ago we were told not to worry about, Sabesp once again gets the worst of it in the public relations wars. It tries, for example, to underscore its «digitalness» [my phrase] by boasting of a Web-based database that tells you the schedule for water to be turned off in your neighborhood.

Reducing pressure in the pipes is a technique commonly practised by sanitation companies to reduce the loss of water sources.

With the advancement of hydraulic equipment and data transmission, it is possible to accompany, in real time, the quantity of water used in a certain region, then remotely calibrate the pressure existing in the local pipe network in order to reduce the quantity of water lost to leakage and fraud.

Sabesp has applied this technique in the network that supplies the greater metro area since 1997,

As we prepare for a long drought that up until several weeks ago we were told not to worry about, Sabesp once again gets the worst of it in the public relations wars. It tries, for example, to underscore its «digitality» [my phrase] by boasting of a Web-based database that tells you the schedule for water to be turned off in your neighborhood.

We live in Pinheiros, more or less, and can expect outages from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. I cannot for the life of me find data that would have been the perfect opportunity for a Google Map-based page.

So, nothing to boast about. I could probably cobble something like this together and bury it somewhere on a Web site all by myself, and I am a total amateur in Webmastering.

Sabesp has also launched a public campaign — it is a very frequent advertiser on electronic media — known as the Calculator of Dreams.

Reduction of pressure in water pipes is a technique and a common practice of sanitation companies to reduce water losses.

With advances in hydraulic equipment and data transmission, it is possible to track in real time the quanity of water use in a given region and remotely calibrate the existing pressure in the local network in order to reduce the amount of water lost to fraud and leakage.

Sabesp has been using this technology in the São Paulo Metro Area water supply since 1997.

As it happens, with a dry, hot summer upon us, compared with recent years, and water levels falling at the headwaters … it is absolutely necessary to intensify this action to avoid the complete exhaustion of the reservoirs until the normal rains return.

Operation Blackwater

As we make our own preparations for water rationing, it is interesting to read about a factor that is often neglected — the illegal hook-up, such as cooking gas, electricity, cable TV and Internet, and water as well. Here is an exemplary case from late last year, as reported by O Globo.

Two men were arrested on November 28 after they were caught at black-market recharging points for water trucks in Cabo Frio, Região dos Lagos, Rio de Janeiro. The arrests were made during an operation of the Rio DDSD — [Defense of Delegated Services Division], which found wells drilled on two properties, one in Botafogo and the other in Parque Burle.

The police were called to the scene by local residents, and confirmed that the artesian wells were used for illegally filling up water distribution trucks. In Botafogo, the police found three wells with a storage volume of some 120,000 liters each. Nearly 50 water trucks were loaded every day. In Parque Burle, three wells with a capacity of 50,000 liters each supplied 20 truckloads a day.
