Brazil’s Petrobras plans to invest $68 billion in boosting production

Brazil’s Petrobras plans to invest $68 billion in boosting production

Brasilia, November 29 - Neftegaz.RU. According to OilPrice, Petrobras plans to invest $68 billion in expanding its crude oil production, a figure that represents 84 % of its total planned investments for the period 2022-2026.

Offshore Technology reports that the number is a substantial increase on previously planned investments of $55 billion Petrobras announced for the 2020-2025 period.
Chief executive Joaquim Silva e Luna said:
  • Petrobras maintains its consistent strategy of focusing on projects with the potential to generate resources and contribute to the Brazilian society
  • We prioritise transforming resources into wealth for the country while following the sustainable path for the energy transition
The company will allocate $1.8 billion from its 2022-2026 budget to decarbonization operations.
In October, Petrobras reported a net profit of $5.34 billion for the 3rd quarter of the year, with revenues of $21.78 billion, benefiting like its peers from the robust increase in international oil prices.

It also boasted a reduction in gross debt to $59.6 billion from $79.58 billion in the 3rd quarter of 2020.
The sizeable net income, however, prompted a backlash from Brazil’s president, who criticized Petrobras for high fuel prices and taking too much in the way of profits.

Brazil has recently shaped up as one of the biggest hot spots in oil & gas, thanks to its presalt zone that contains abundant hydrocarbon reserves waiting to be tapped.
Interest from investors is also significant, despite the green transition push.

Brazil is already the largest oil producer in Latin America, but the country now plans to become one of the world’s 5 largest global crude producers.
