RIO DE JANEIRO - Brazilian government-managed oil giant Petrobras reported in a recent press release record production levels for the month of September. Domestic output increased by 1.2 percent in August. The record figures translate to two million barrels per day, compared to the previous record of 1.98 million barrels per day.
Significant factors contributing to the record figures were the completion of maintenance on the P-19 floating platform, increased production from wells in the Marlim Sul and Caratinga fields, as well as the Cidade de São Vicente coming back online . . .
