Presalt oil hits new peak for Petrobras offshore Brazil

Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIROPetrobras brought onstream seven new offshore wells last month in the Campos and Santos basins.

The company’s presalt oil production from both basins reached a record 669,000 b/d in January, up 0.5% from December 2014. This represents around 28% of the company’s operated production throughout Brazil.

Some of the company’s platforms underwent maintenance stoppages in January, notably the P-57 and P-58 serving the Jubarte, Baleia Franca and Baleia Azul fields in the Campos basin. However, both have since resumed production.
