SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil’s state-controlled oil company Petróleo Brasileiro SA confirmed on Friday that Trident Energy presented the highest bid to acquire the Pampo and Enchova oil fields, offering close to $1 billion.

In a securities filing, the company known as Petrobras said the deal has yet to receive final approval from all of its internal departments. Reuters reported earlier on Friday that Warburg Pincus-backed Trident was the winner in a re-bid for the fields.
