Offshore staff

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Petroleo Brasileiro SA says it set a monthly oil production record in Brazil of 2,033,000 b/d in April. This surpassed the previous record by 29,000 b/d.

Petrobras also says it set two consecutive daily oil and LNG production records on April 23-24 of 2,081,000 b/d and 2,084,000 b/d, respectively.

The results stem from operations at the platforms offshore from Rio de Janeiro and Espirito Santo, especially the connection of new wells to the FPSO Cidade de Vitoria in Golfinho field and new wells on production in Marlim Leste.

In the near future, operationis are expected to start up at two more FPSOs, the Cidade de Santos in Urugua/Tambau and the Capixaba in Cachalote/Baleia Franca.
