ANP forecasts a gradual growth in production in the coming years, reaching 571.5 thousand m³ / day (3.6 million barrels per day) of oil and 173.2 million m³ / d of natural gas in 2025 .
– It represents an increase of 23% in relation to 2021, in the case of oil, and 34% in the case of gas. For this year, the projection for oil production is 463.96 thousand m³ / d (2.9 million bpd) and for gas, 129.17 million m³ / d.
– Most of the investment by oil companies will go to drilling, although the projection is for a decline over the years. In 2021, the investment will be R$ 12.5 billion; increases to R$ 12.77 billion in 2022; and remains in decline until 2025, reaching R$ 4.68 billion.
