Total production of oil and natural gas in Brazil in April totaled 2.893 million of barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe / d). Oil production was approximately 2,290 million barrels per day (bbl / d), an increase of 1.1% compared to the previous month and reduction of 4.3% compared to the same month in 2015. Since production natural gas totaled 95.8 million cubic meters per day (m3 / d), an increase of 6% over the previous month and increased 1.5% compared to the same month in 2015.

Subsalt

The production of pre-salt, coming from 56 wells, was 801,300 barrels of oil per day (bbl / d) of oil and 30.8 million cubic meters per day (m3 / d) of natural gas, totaling 994,900 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe / d), a decrease of 9.9% over the previous month. The main reason for the reduction of production in pre-salt were shutdowns of platforms FPSO Cidade de Paraty and FPSO Cidade de Angra dos Reis, both located in the Lula field. The wells of the "pre-salt" are those whose production is carried out in the geological horizon called pre-salt fields located in the area defined in section IV of the caput of art. 2 of Law No. 12,351, 2010.

Flaring

The natural gas utilization in the month was 95.8%. The gas burns in April was 4 million cubic meters per day (m3 / d), a decrease of 13.8% compared to the previous month and an increase of 9.2% over the same month in 2015.

The Lula field, in the Santos Basin, was the largest producer of oil and natural gas, producing on average 307,900 bbl / d of oil and 14.9 million cubic meters / day of natural gas.

Strait, in the Potiguar Basin, had the largest number of producing wells: 1,064. Marlim field in the Campos Basin, was the maritime field with the largest number of producing wells: 60.

The platform P-58 producing fields whale dwarf, blue whale, France humpback whale is produced by means of shafts 11 connected to it, 170,700 BOE / a was more production platform.

Land mature basins (fields / long-term testing of the basins of Espirito Santo, Potiguar, Reconcavo, Sergipe and Alagoas) produced 159,200 boe / d and 129,400 bbl / d of oil and 4.7 million m3 / d of natural gas. Of this total, 154.2 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day were produced by Petrobras and 5,000 boe / d by grants not operated by Petrobras, with 415 boe / d in Alagoas, 1,809 boe / d in Bahia, 18 boe / d in Holy spirit, 2,637 boe / d in Rio Grande do Norte and 118 boe / d in Sergipe.
