RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazil will ask oil companies operating its offshore fields to provide information on well control systems and to review their emergency response protocols in the wake of the BP Gulf of Mexico spill, the ANP energy regulator said late Wednesday.

The vast majority of the roughly 2 million barrels per day that state oil company Petrobras produces in Brazil come from offshore fields, and most of the country's future output growth is seen coming from ultra-deep water fields.

The ANP said in a statement it had decided to "send information requests to all the concession-holders that operate in Brazilian waters seeking information on well control systems for offshore drilling."
