November 2.358 million barrels of oil were produced daily
According to ANP, the lower output in November from October was largely due to the fact that maintenance at rigs brought production to a halt. In all, 2.935 million barrels of oil equivalent were produced per day (boed) in November.
Production at the pre-salt area averaged at 602,300 barrels of oil per day, and 20.9 million cubic metres of natural gas per day. Total oil and gas output at the pre-salt layer stood at 733,600 boed in November, down 0.8% from October. ■
