Brazil's Petrobras said its domestic oil production in January was 2.23Mb/d, down 3% from December.
The federal energy giant attributed the dip to a scheduled stoppage of platform P-40 in the Marlim Sul field and maintenance at one Cidade de Anchieta FPSO well in Parque das Baleias, both in the Campos basin.
The company's domestic natural gas output, excluding liquefied volume, was 81.4Mm3/d last month, "in line" with December production.
Petrobras highlighted that its pre-salt oil production in January hit a record 1.59Mboe/d, with monthly and daily oil output records of 1.28Mb/d and 1.34Mb/d, the latter achieved on January 4.
The results were mainly due to new wells at Santos basin FPSOs Cidade de Caraguatatuba (Lapa field); Cidade de Saquarema, Cidade de Mangaratiba and Cidade de Itaguaí (Lula field); and Cidade de São Paulo (Sapinhoá field), said the company.
Petrobras also pointed to higher operating performance at Campos platform P-58 in Parque das Baleias.
On another front, Petrobras and Foro Energy signed an amendment extending their technology cooperation agreement for developing a next generation high power laser drilling system by two years.
