Petrobras’ average oil and natural gas production in October, both in Brazil and abroad, reached 2.76 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), 1.6% higher than the 2.72 million boed recorded in September.

Domestic production of oil and natural gas averaged 2.57 million boed in October, 1.6% up on last month’s figure (2.53 million boed).

 

Oil and gas production in Brazil

Petrobras’ own production in Brazil totaled 2.10 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) in October, an increase of 2.1% on the September figure (2.06 million bpd).

According to Petrobras, this increase was due to the completion of scheduled maintenance operations, halting production on the large platforms in September.

Own natural gas production in Brazil, excluding liquefied gas, totaled 74.7 million m3/day in October, remaining steady compared to the September figure (75.0 million m³/day).

 

Pre-salt production remains above 1 million boed

Oil and gas production operated by Petrobras in the pre-salt layer remained above 1 million boed in October, with an average volume of 1.005 million boed, 2.3% down on September (1.028 million boed).

Oil production operated by Petrobras in the pre-salt stood at 809,000 bpd, again 2.3% down on September (828,000 bpd).

 

Oil and gas production abroad

Petrobras produced 194,000 boed abroad, 3.4% more than the previous month’s figure of 188,000 boed. This increase was chiefly due to the high performance of new wells in the Rio Neuquén field (Argentina) and the completion of cleaning operations on the export gas pipeline in the Akpo field (Nigeria).

Oil production averaged 99,000 bpd in October, 2.8% higher than the 97,000 bpd recorded in September.

Natural gas production abroad averaged 16.1 million m³/d, 4.1% up on the 15.5 million m³/d recorded in the previous month, due to the high performance of new wells in the Rio Neuquén field.
