Monthly Crude Oil & Natural Gas Production in Brazil

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/2/2013, Location: South America

Petrobras announces that, in July, oil output (oil plus natural gas liquids - NGL) from all the company’s fields in Brazil was 1,888 thousand barrels per day (bpd), 4.6% lower than the previous month (1,979 thousand barrels). Including the share operated by Petrobras for its partners, oil production in Brazil was 1,946 thousand bpd, indicating a 4.7% drop from June.

The decrease in July was caused by scheduled maintenance shutdowns on Campos Basin platforms (P-40, located in Marlim Sul field, P-20 in Marlim, PPM-1 in Pampo and FPSO-RJ in Espadarte), in addition to the completion of an extended well test in Sapinhoa Norte field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt, operated by the itinerant production unit FPSO Cidade de S?o Vicente. In September, this unit will initiate a new extended well test in the Lula Extremo Sul area.

In July, Petrobras’ total output (oil and natural gas) in Brazil averaged 2,282 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), 4.9% lower than June. Including the share operated by Petrobras for partners, total output in July was 2,386 thousand boed, which is 4.1% lower than the previous month.

Added to the company’s output abroad, total oil and natural gas production in July averaged 2,490 thousand boed, 4.9% lower than June.

Platform P-63, first production unit of the Papa Terra project, in Campos Basin, has completed adaptation work for the new submarine layout rigorously on schedule and it is already on its permanent location. It is being connected to anchorage lines and first oil should take place on October 23rd.

Moreover, the installation of the riser support buoy (RSB) that will connect the Sapinhoa wells to FPSO Cidade de Sao Paulo is in progress. Subsequently, the company will start the installation of the RSB in the Lula Nordeste field connected to the FPSO Cidade de Paraty.

These operations, together with the new systems that will come on stream in the second half of the year (P-55, P-58 and P-61) will contribute to Petrobras´ continuous and sustainable production growth.

Natural Gas Production
In July, non-liquefied natural gas output from the company’s fields in Brazil was 62,717 thousand cubic meters (m3) per day and total gas output, including the share operated by the company for its partners, was 69,858 thousand m3 per day, remaining within the same levels as June.

A new monthly record for natural gas utilization was achieved in July by using 94% of the gas associated with produced oil.

International Production
In July, total oil and natural gas production abroad was 208,598 boed, which corresponds to an 11.2% decrease compared to June. Of this total, natural gas output reached 15,618 thousand m3 per day, 1.3% higher than June. However, oil output was 116,675 barrels per day, 19% lower than the previous month.

The increase in natural gas production was due to new well drilling in El Mangrullo field, in Argentina. In contrast, oil output decreased by 50% in Nigeria and Angola, as a result of the formation of Petrobras Oil & Gas B.V. (PO&G), in a joint venture, with a 50% stake by Petrobras. Information to the Brazilian National Agency for Oil, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP)

In July 2013, the total output reported to ANP was 9,048,361.25 m3 of oil and 2,278,013.82 thousand m3 of gas. This output corresponds to the total output of the concessions where Petrobras is the operator. It does not include Shale, NGL volumes and partners’ output where Petrobras is not the operator.
