Petrobras gas production climbs
Petrobras of Brazil said its natural gas production reached 65.4 million cubic meters per day in May, surpassing the previous month’s production of 64 million m³/d by 2.2%.
The total production operated by Petrobras, including the share operated for its partners, was 73.960 million m³/d, up 2.9% from April.
Natural gas production abroad was 16.547 million m³/d, up 0.9% from April’s production of 16.395 million m³/d, due to higher sales of Bolivian gas to the Brazilian market.
The total production reported to Brazil’s National Petroleum Agency (ANP) in May 2014 was 9,785,640.85 m³ of oil and 2,410,421,380 m³ of gas.
This production corresponds to the total output of the concessions where Petrobras is the operator. It does not include shale volumes, LNG and partners’ output where Petrobras is not the operator.
