Brazil’s state-run Petrobras has confirmed that deepwater Buzios oilfield’s platforms P-74, P-75, P-76, and P-77 have yielded an all-time record production, according to a Reuters.
The four deepwater platforms produced 664,000 barrels of oil per day (bbl/d) and 822,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).
Furthermore, the company’s oil sales have witnessed month on month growth with 764,000 cubic meters (cm) of diesel sold between June 14 and June 20. This is compared to 757,000 cm in the last week of March.
In terms of gas sales, they are still slightly lagging behind pre-pandemic levels, totalling 341,000 cm between June 14 and June 20 as opposed to 354,000 cm in March.
Claudio Mastella, head of commercialization efforts at Petrobras, said in an online conference that Petrobras had managed to sustain production levels at its refineries at a level close or higher than those before the pandemic.
