Petrobras announces that, in August, oil output (oil plus natural gas liquids - NGL) from all the company's fields in Brazil averaged 1,908,000 barrels per day (bpd). This volume is 1.1% higher than the average output of the previous month (1,888,000 bpd). Including the share operated by the company for its partners, oil output exclusively in Brazil reached 1,971,000 bpd, indicating a 1.3% rise from July.

This positive result is due to the resumption of operations on platforms undergoing scheduled maintenance stoppages in July (P-40 in Marlim Sul, P-20 in Marlim, PPM-1 in Pampo and FPSO-RJ in Espadarte) and the startup of wells on platforms P-54 and FPSO-Piranema. According to the schedule, production was halted on platforms P-26 and P-35 (both in Marlim) in August to comply with the scheduled maintenance shutdown program.

In August, Petrobras' total output (oil and natural gas) in Brazil averaged 2,294,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boed), 0.5% higher than output in July. Including the share operated by Petrobras for partners, total output volume in August was 2,401,000 boed, 0.6% up on the July output.
