      The National Oil and Gas Agency (ANP) published the Monthly Bulletin of Oil and Natural Gas Production on Thursday, with the consolidated data of the national production in the month of June. Approximately 2.828 MMbbl/d (million barrels per day) of oil and 133 MMm3/d (million cubic meters per day) of natural gas were produced, totaling 3.664 MMboe/d (million barrels of oil equivalent per day). The fields operated by Petrobras accounted for 92.7% of the oil and natural gas produced in Brazil.

      Production in the pre-salt in June registered a volume of 2.759 MMboe/d (million barrels of oil equivalent per day), of which 2.188 MMbbl/d of oil and 90.7 MMm3/d of natural gas, corresponding to 75.3% of national production. The production came from 126 wells.

      With the signing of the contracts for the second Auction of the Surplus Volumes of the Transfer of Rights, as of May 2022, production in the Atapu and Sepia fields will each be assigned to two separate contracts, one under the transfer of rights regime and the other under the production sharing regime. In the case of Atapu, the stakes were divided in 39.5% (onerous transfer) and 60.5% (production sharing). As for Sépia, the split was 31.3% (onerous transfer) and 68.7% (production sharing).

      In June, the use of natural gas was 96.7%. A total of 53.5 MMm³/day was made available to the market and the gas flared in the month was 4.3 Mmm³/d. In May, the offshore fields produced 97.4% of the oil and 81.7% of the natural gas.

      In June, the Tupi field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt, was the biggest oil and natural gas producer, registering 714 Mbbl/d of oil and 33.1 MMm³/d of natural gas. The FPSO Carioca Platform, producing in the Sépia and Sépia Leste fields, through four interconnected wells, produced 172.904 Mbbl/d and was the facility with the highest oil production.
