Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras, announces that Petrobras’s domestic oil production in November reached 1,968,307 barrels per day (bpd), 1.5% higher than October. If added to the share operated for its partners, this volume reaches 2,007,346 bpd, or up 1.7% from October.
Petrobras’s domestic natural gas production was 62.179 million cubic meters per day. If Petrobras’s natural gas production is added to the share operated for its partners, this volume goes to 68.464 million cubic meters per day. Both values are within the same levels of October.
Petrobras’s total oil and natural gas production, including domestic and overseas fields, averaged 2,575,249 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) in November – this volume is close to October’s production (2,581,552 boed).
Domestic fields produced 2,359,402 barrels of oil equivalent (oil and natural gas), up 1.2% when compared with the previous month. This rise was due primarily to the increase in production of platform FPSO Cidade de Anchieta, located in the pre-salt of Baleia Azul field, Campos Basin, off the coast of Espírito Santo state. When Petrobras’s production is added to the share operated for its partners, this value increases to 2,437,973 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), a 1.4% increase from October.
Note that the scheduled maintenance shutdown program for Campos Basin platforms continued in November on P-18, installed in Marlim field, and on P-43, in Barracuda field.
Total international production was 215,847 boed, representing a 13.4% fall from the previous month. Of this total 119,348 barrels per day were of oil, representing a 20.8% reduction when compared with October, due to the closing of wells for maintenance of the production platform at Akpo Field, Nigeria.
Natural gas production reached 16.395 million cubic meters/day, representing a 2.1% drop from October.
