Petrobras’ domestic oil production tops 2 million bbl/day in June

Posted on 22 July 2014

Petrobras’ June oil production in Brazil averaged 2.008 million bbl/day (bpd), a 1.7% increase from May’s production of 1.975 million bpd. In addition, the production operated by Petrobras for its partners in Brazil increased by 2.1%. The volume reached 2.135 million bpd, up from last month’s production of 2.092 million bpd.

The company’s oil and natural gas production in Brazil in the same month was 2.426 million bbl of oil equivalent per day (boed), indicating a 1.6% increase from May’s 2.387 million boed. In addition, the production operated by Petrobras for its partner companies in Brazil also increased by 2%. The volume reached 2.61 million boed, up from May’s production of 2.558 million boed.

The production growth was mainly due to the volume increase from platform P-62 at the Roncador field in the Campos Basin. A total of 22 wells, 14 oil and gas producers and eight water injectors, will be interconnected to this unit within the next few months. A new well was connected to platform P-48 at Caratinga field’s pre-salt layer in the Campos Basin, which also contributed to the increase in production.

Eight new offshore wells in the Santos and Campos basins started production in June. In addition, 30 new subsea wells began operating during the first half of the year, twice the amount that started production in the same period last year.
