Oil output (oil plus natural gas liquids - NGL) from all of Petrobras' fields in Brazil averaged 1.979 million barrels per day (bpd) in September, which is 3.7% higher than the average output of the previous month (1.908 million bpd).

Petrobas explain that this positive result was due to the startup of new wells on platforms FPSO Cidade de Itajaí (Santos Basin), P-53 and P-54 (Campos Basin) and FPSO Piranema (Sergipe Basin). In line with the planned schedule, the maintenance stoppages in September of P-26 and P-35, both in Marlim, were concluded, as well as the activities related to the upcoming stoppage of P-51, in Marlim Sul, and of the natural gas processing plant UPGN2 in Urucu, in UO-AM.



The highlight of the month was the pre-salt output record of 326,800 bpd. On September 2, a new pre-salt output record of 337,300 bpd was established. These volumes represent the total output operated by Petrobras in these areas, including the share of its partners.

In September, Petrobras' total output in Brazil, including oil and natural gas, averaged 2.368 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), 3.2% higher than August.
