RIO DE JANEIRO – Petrobras’ oil and gas production last month totaled 2.72 MMboe.
Output from the company’s oil fields in Brazil averaged 2.11 MMb/d, in line with volumes for July.
Presalt production was 2.5% lower, however, due mainly to the scheduled stoppage of the FPSOsCidade de Maricá and Cidade de Itaguaíat the Lula field in the presalt Santos basin.
The company’s oil production from overseas fields fell 4.9% to an average of 62,000 b/d, and gas output from these fields was 7.2% lower at 7.8 MMcm/d.
Shutting in of producing fields in the US Gulf of Mexico during the passage ofHurricane Harvey was the main factor.
