Petrobras says that oil production in the fields operated by Petrobras in the Santos and Campos Basins pre-salt areas has exceeded 500 thousand barrels per day (bpd) – reaching 520 thousand bpd on June 24 – a new daily production record. Of this volume, 78% (406 thousand bpd) corresponds to Petrobras’ share while the remainder corresponds to the contribution of partner companies in the various areas of production in the pre-salt layer.

The production of 520 thousand barrels per day was achieved only eight years after the first pre-salt oil discovery which took place in 2006. Petrobras achieved this historic landmark with only 25 production wells. The magnitude of this achievement can be better analyzed by comparing the company’s own production record:
