São Paulo – Average daily oil and gas production in Brazil was 3.306 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed). Oil-only output was 2.624 million boed, up 9% from October 2015. In October from September, however, average daily production slid by 1.8%. The numbers were made public this Thursday (1) by the National Petroleum Agency (ANP).
Natural gas production reached 108.5 cubic meters per day, up 11.2% from October last year, but down 1.8% over September 2016.
The ANP said maintenance at oil rigs was the reason for the drop in output.
