OGX Petróleo e Gás Participações S.A. (“OGX”), announces that its average oil and natural gas production for July 2013 reached 13.7 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd).
Of this amount, 0.9 thousand boepd corresponds to the offshore average production at Tubarão Azul Field, in the Campos Basin, and 12.8 thousand boepd (2.0 million m3 per day) to OGX’s share of the average production of natural gas at the onshore Gavião Real Field, in the Parnaíba Basin. Overall for July 2013, total offshore production was of 27,563 barrels of oil equivalent and total onshore production was of 134.8 million m3 of natural gas.
