Petrobras Achieves New Record Oil Production

Petrobras informs that in December it achieved three new records in Brazil: the monthly, annual and daily oil production averages. The monthly average for December will be approximately 2,120 thousand barrels a day, against the previous record of April of this year of 2,033 thousand barrels. The volume produced in the month is 4.4% higher than the production achieved in November of this year (2,030 thousand bpd).

In addition to the monthly record, the Company recorded yet another daily record. On December 27th, oil production reached 2,256 thousand barrels. With these results, the Company closes 2010 with a level of production higher than 2 million barrels a day (2,003 thousand bpd), which also represents a new annual record.

This performance was mainly due to five new wells coming into production in the Campos Basin during the month: CHT-9 and BFR-3, in the Cachalote and Baleia Franca fields, both interconnected to FPSO Capixaba; wells JUB-9 and JUB-14, which produce connected to the newly installed P-57 platform, in the Jubarte field; and CRT-43, which was given the working name Carimbé and is a producer well nestled in the pre-salt layer of the Caratinga field, which is connected to platform P-48.

With the aggregate contribution of these five wells, it was possible to add more than 100,000 barrels per day to Petrobras' production in Brazil. Furthermore, it is important to highlight the high level of operational efficiency achieved in the month by the Stationary Production Units (SPU) of all operating units.

The good performance of fields located in mature areas in Northern and Northeastern Brazil and in the state of Espirito Santo also contributed to the results. These fields, where production had been declining in recent years, managed to maintain an average production of around 213,000 barrels of oil per day in 2010 thanks to the revitalization effort undertaken by Petrobras.

Another highlight was production being kicked-off at well SPS-55, which initiated the Extended Well Test in the Guara area, in the Santos Basin pre-salt layer.
