Added wells boost Petrobras’ presalt production

Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIRO – Oil and gas production from Petrobras-operated presalt fields offshore Brazil rose by 4% in August to a new monthly record of 1.36 MMboe/d.

This was due mainly to the connection of new wells and increased production from wells already linked to the FPSOs Cidade Maricá and Cidade de Saquarema.

Both are installed in the Lula field in the presalt Santos basin.
