Rio de Janeiro – Oil and gas output for Brazil’s Petrobras reached 3.34 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) in October, up 8% from September. Domestic output accounted for 3.18 million boed.
The information was made public by Petrobras on Tuesday evening (27). The Brazilian state-owned oil company imputed the hike in output to the fact that rig FPSO P-69 became operational in the Far South section of the Lula oilfield, in the Santos Basin pre-salt area.
Petrobras reported that proprietary oil and gas production (partners not included) hit 2.66 million boed, with 2.544 million boed coming from Brazil and 119,000 boed coming from abroad.
