Check out the data on our oil and natural gas output in October
Our total oil and natural gas output in October was 2.81 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), of which 2.68 million boed produced in Brazil, while 0.12 million boed abroad.
The average oil output in Brazil was 2.19 million barrels per day (bpd), down 2 percent compared to September, when there was record production. This result was due mainly to maintenance shutdowns at FPSOs Cidade de Anchieta and Capixaba, both in Parque das Baleias, and at FPSO Cidade Angra dos Reis, in Lula. Performance so far shows that we are heading towards the annual oil output target set for Brazil, of 2.145 million bpd.
Pre-salt output sets new daily record
In October, the oil and natural gas production we operated (own and partners) in the pre-salt layer was 1.42 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), 2.7 percent lower than the previous month’s.
The average oil production operated by Petrobras in the pre-salt layer was 1.14 million bpd. It is worthy of note that the company and its partners set a new daily output record in that province, producing, on the 11th, a volume of 1.23 million barrels of oil.
Natural gas production
Natural gas output in Brazil, excluding the liquefied volume, was 77.5 million m³/day, 4.5 percent less than the previous month’s due to the above-mentioned shutdowns.
The average natural gas production abroad, excluding the liquefied volume, was 9.7 million m³/d, up 2.2 percent compared to the previous month’s, mainly due to the resumption of production at the Hadrian South field, in the United States, after a shutdown done in September.
