Brazil’s oil company Petrobras reports that its total production of oil and gas, including natural gas liquids (NGL) in June 2018 was 2.62 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed).

Of the total amount, 2.53 million boed were produced in Brazil and 98 thousand boed produced abroad. Total production operated by the company (Petrobras and partners’ share) was 3.30 million boed, with 3.17 million boed in Brazil.

The average oil production in the country was 2.03 million barrels per day (bpd), 1.5% lower than the volume produced in May, mainly due to the maintenance stoppage of FPSO Cidade de Paraty located in Lula field at Santos Basin pre-salt and the sale of 25% stake of Roncador field to Equinor, concluded on June 14.

Petrobras also highlighted the start-up of FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes located in Tartaruga Verde field at Campos Basin on June 22.

The production of natural gas in Brazil, excluding the liquefied volume, was 78.2 million m³/d, 3.4% lower than the previous month, mainly due to the reasons mentioned above.

Oil production in the fields abroad was 60 thousand bpd, volume 2.3% higher than the previous month, due to the production increased at fields in Nigeria. The natural gas production was 6.4 million m³/d, in line with the volume produced in May.
