Brazil oil, gas production rises despite pre-salt dip

Brazilian oil and gas production rose in April despite falling output from pre-salt fields, the mining and energy ministry said on Wednesday.

Production averaged 2.89Mboe/d, up 2.12% on the March figure. Oil contributed 2.29Mb/d and natural gas 95.8Mm3/d, the ministry said in a bulletin.

Hydrocarbons came from 8,925 wells, of which 761 were offshore and 8,164 onshore.

Offshore areas accounted for 93% of oil and 76% of gas.

Pre-salt fields deep below the Atlantic delivered 801,000b/d of crude, down 9.3% from the previous month. The ministry gave no reasons for the decline.

Lula field was the highest-producing pre-salt area with 307,900b/d followed by Sapinhoá with 229,100b/d.
