Petrobras reaches record-breaking pre-salt productionStaff writer ▼ | June 15, 2015
Oil production in the pre-salt layer broke two records in May, according to a statement by Petrobras.
Energy 726,000 barrels per day
In total, however, the performance in May was lower than April’s average. Petrobras produced 2.766 million barrels of oil and gas (equivalent) in May, 7% lower than in April.
In domestic fields only, exploration added up to 2.574 million in oil equivalent, a decline of 0.8% in comparison to April.
According to Petrobras, the decline in production was due to a higher number of scheduled maintenance stops. This drop was compensated, in part, by unities that resume their activities. ■
