Petrobras sets new gas production record

Petrobras sets new gas production record

Petrobras of Brazil said its domestic natural gas production reached 66.4 million cubic meters per day (m³/d) in June, up by 1.5% compared to last month’s production and has established a new monthly record for Petrobras’ natural gas production.

The total production operated by Petrobras, including the share operated for its partners, was 75,540 thousand m³/d, up 2.1% from May.

It is worth mentioning that 94.5% of the natural gas produced was used, either to supply the market, or to generate electricity in the production platforms or to be reinjected in the reservoirs to increase oil output. In the Santos Basin pre-salt cluster, natural gas use reached 97.7%.

Natural gas production abroad was 15,828 thousand m³/d, down 4.3% from May’s production of 16,547 thousand m³/d. This reduction was due to a lower production in Lote 57 of Kinteroni´s field, in Peru, as a consequence of smaller demand for LNG exports from that country.
