Petrobras reduces impact of oil workers’ strike

Petrobras has managed to reduce the impact of this week’s oil workers’ strike.

The Brazilian state-run oil and gas company said that, thanks to its contingency plan, the loss of production on November 4 was 134,000 barrels of oil, which means a 25% recovery with respect to that recorded the previous day.

According to Petrobras, the estimated loss for Thursday is 127,000 barrels.

Petrobras also said that there were isolated cases of occupation of facilities and control of production, without permission for contingency teams to operate.

“The company is taking all the appropriate legal measures to protect its rights and will continue to do everything needed to ensure the maintenance of its operations, the preservation of its installations and the safety of its workers,” the company said.

Petrobras added that any material facts would be timely disclosed to the market.

To remind, Brazil’s largest oil workers’ union, FUP, started the strike on Sunday, November 1, 2015, protesting against attempts by the government to shrink the state-run Petrobras.
