Petrobras’ oil and gas production edges down in June
Brazil’s Petrobras said that its oil and natural gas production, including natural gas liquids (NGL), was 2.62 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) in June, dipping slightly from the previous month.
The state-owned energy giant said that 2.53 million boed were produced in Brazil and 98 thousand boed were produced abroad.
The production of natural gas in Brazil, excluding the liquefied volume, was 78.2 million cubic meters per day, 3.4 percent lower than the previous month.
This was mainly due to the maintenance stoppage of FPSO Cidade de Paraty located in Lula field at Santos basin pre-salt and the sale of 25 percent stake of Roncador field to Equinor.
Natural gas production abroad was 6.4 million cbm/d, in line with the volume produced in May, Petrobras said.
