Petrobras announced, this Monday (17), that it recorded an annual record of pre-salt production in 2021.

1.95 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) were reached, a volume that corresponds to 70% of the company’s total production, which was 2.77 million boed last year.

The previous record belonged to the year 2020, in which the mark of 1.86 million boed was reached, representing 66% of Petrobras’ total production.

The new record recorded in 2021 represents more than double the volume produced in the pre-salt 5 years ago.

“With the maintenance of the focus of its activities on assets in deep and ultra-deep waters, Petrobras will continue to invest in accelerating the development of pre-salt fields, which have high productivity, greater resilience to low oil prices and more efficiency in carbon, generating competitive oil in the transition to a low carbon economy,” the state-owned company said in a statement.

The company informed that, in the period of the Strategic Plan 2022-26, US$ 57 billion will be invested in the E&P segment (exploration and production), with 67% of this total in the pre-salt layer.

The pre-salt will receive 12 of the 15 new platforms scheduled to come into operation in this period and should be responsible for 79% of Petrobras’ total production in 2026, according to the statement.
