Brazil on its journey to increase oil and gas production. The country achieved an important achievement in September, when it produced 4.048 million barrels of oil equivalent per day – a value that represents 3.148 million barrels of oil and 143 million cubic meters of natural gas. This was the second time in its entire history that Brazil managed to surpass the barrier of 4 million barrels of oil equivalent per day – the first took place in January 2020.
The data were released by the National Petroleum Agency (ANP). According to the regulatory agency, in September, production in the pre-salt reached 3 million barrels of oil equivalent per day and represented 74.11% of the national total. The Tupi field, in the Santos Basin, produced 887,710 barrels a day and was the area with the highest productivity. The highest production facility was the FPSO Carioca, with 196,740 barrels of oil equivalent per day. It is important to note that the platform has only 4 connected production wells.
In August, as reported, the total production of oil and gas in Brazil was 3.967 million barrels of oil equivalent per day, with 3.087 million barrels of oil per day and 139.96 million cubic meters per day of natural gas.
