RIO DE JANEIROPetrobras’ presalt oil production offshore Brazil reached a new peak of 1.45 MMbbl on Nov. 30.

The company’s monthly presalt output averaged 1.65 MMboe/d, 1.5% up on October, due mainly to higher production from theLula field through theP-66 platform.

Petrobras’ oil production outside Brazil fell by 2.8% last month, mainly because of operational issues at the Lucius and Cascade fields in the Gulf of Mexico.

The company’s gas production was down 6.8% following further issues at the Hadrian South field in the same sector.
