Oil production increases 6.9% and natural gas 8.2% in June

The total production of oil and natural gas in Brazil in June reached 2.79 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day, 2.246 million barrels of oil and 86.6 million cubic meters of natural gas. The volume is higher than the previous month, when the production of oil and natural gas amounted to 2.721 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. Oil production also exceeded the previous record of 2.231 million barrels per day reached in January 2012 there was a 2.6% increase in oil production compared to May 2014 and 6.9% compared to June 2013 the production of natural gas exceeded by 2.4% the previous month, 84.5 million cubic meters per day, and 8.2% in the June 2013 Bulletin of information is the production ANP, available in http://www.anp.gov.br/?pg=71248.

 

Subsalt

 

The pre-salt production increased 6.2% from the previous month, totaling 583.2 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day, 478,000 barrels of oil and 16.7 million cubic meters of natural gas per day. The production originated in 33 wells located in fields of Baleia Azul, Baleia, Barracuda, Caratinga, Búzios, Linguado, Lula, Marlim Leste, Pampo, Sapinhoá, Trilha and Iara area. The wells of the "pre-salt" are those whose production is performed in the geological horizon called pre-salt fields located in areas defined in the item IV of the art. 2 of Law No. 12,351, 2010.

 

Gas flaring

 

The use of natural gas for the month was 95.1%. The burning of natural gas in June was about 4.3 million cubic meters per day, a reduction of approximately 9.9% over the previous month and up 14.7% compared to June 2013.

 

producing fields

 

Around 90.4% of oil and natural gas came from fields operated by Petrobras. Approximately 92.4% of oil production and 73.5% of natural gas production in Brazil were extracted from offshore fields. The Roncador field in the Campos Basin, was the highest oil production, with an average of 256.2 thousand barrels per day.

Regulating Gas Law (Law No. 11.909/2009)

On March 5, 2009 was published Law No. 11.909/2009 (known in the market as "Gas Law"), which governs the activities related to the transportation of natural gas, mentioned in Article 177 of the Constitution, as well how about the activities of handling, processing, storage, liquefaction, regasification and marketing of natural gas. The following year the Decree No. 7,382, of December 3, 2010, which aims to regulate the Gas Law was published

 

Both devices provide the detailed legal regulation of the natural gas industry by both the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP).

 

Thus, ANP started, in 2011, the regulatory process of the Gas Act and the Decree No. 7.382/2010.

 

In this sense, the ANP, through its Superintendent of Marketing and Handling of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Derivatives (SCM / ANP), began a series of public consultations and public hearings in order to regulate these legal frameworks.

 

On July 19, 2011 Public Hearing was conducted at No. 14/2011, which dealt with the establishment of the information to be provided to the ANP relating to LNG terminals and criteria for defining pipelines are an integral part of these terminals. As a result of this consultation and public hearing was published ANP Resolution No. 50/2011, published in the Gazette of September 23, 2011.

 

In August 2011 two public hearings were held. The first Public Hearing No. 17/2011, held on April 2, dealt with the regulation of general procedures for the declaration of public utility tasks required for implementation of the pipelines granted or allowed and the general procedures for instruction process areas in order to declare utilities necessary for the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas, construction of refineries, pipelines and terminals, for purposes of expropriation and imposition of easement areas. As a result of this consultation and public hearing was published ANP Resolution No. 44/2011 in the Official Gazette (DOU) of August 19, 2011.

 

The second Public Hearing No. 18/2011, held on August 17, treated in two resolutions: i) that deals with the registration of self-producing and autoimporter and ii) that deals with the authorization to pursue the activity of natural gas supply, the seller's agent registration and marketing contracts. From the analysis of the comments received and discussed throughout the public consultation and public hearing, two resolutions were drawn up, ANP 51/2011 Resolution, and the ANP Resolution No. 52/2011, both published in the Official Gazette of September 30, 2011.

Production of oil and natural gas exceeds 2.7 million BOE in May

Total production of oil and natural gas in Brazil in May reached 2.721 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day, with 2.189 million barrels per day of oil and 84.5 million cubic meters of natural gas. The volume is higher than in January 2012, when the production of oil and natural gas amounted to 2.678 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. The production of natural gas also surpassed the previous record of 83.4 million cubic meters per day achieved in March 2014. Compared to May 2013 there was a 9.8% increase in oil production and 12.9 % in natural gas. Compared to the previous month the increase was 2% for both. The information is from the production of ANP Bulletin, available at http://www.anp.gov.br/?pg=71248.

 

Pre-salt

 

The pre-salt production increased 9.1% from the previous month, totaling 549,300 barrels of oil equivalent per day, 448,200 barrels of oil and 16.1 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.

The wells of the "pre-salt" are those whose production is performed in the geological horizon called pre-salt, located in fields defined in item IV of the art. 2 of Law No. 12,351, 2010.

 

Gas flaring

The burning of natural gas in April was about 4.7 million cubic meters per day, an increase of approximately 1.9% over the previous month and 47.8% compared to May 2013. The main reason for increased burning of natural gas was the commissioning of the P-58 platform, which began operation in Parque das Baleias.

Oil closes up hy in reaction to combat in Iraq

Oil prices rose for the seventh consecutive day in reaction to the news about the conflict between the government of Iraq, the Shiite majority and Sunni guerrillas of a radical movement. After reports that the militants of Isis (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) took control of a plant for production of chemical weapons and after the U.S. President Barack Obama, saying his country would not send troops to Iraq , in addition to a force of 300 "military advisers".

The high prices accelerated after Obama said that U.S. troops will not return to Iraq, but he is prepared to launch air strikes in the country. There are also unconfirmed reports that the guerrillas of Isis would have assumed at least partial control of the oil refinery of Beiji, north of the country - that Iraqi military officials denied.

Most of the production and export of Iraqi oil activities is located in the south of the country, far from where the fighting has taken place. But "the South is not beyond the geographic reach of extremist groups trying to undermine the government. Believe that any significant increase in turbulence in the south, even though the oil facilities are spared, will probably accelerate the exodus of foreign workers in the oil sector to of country, "wrote analysts at Barclays.

On the New York Mercantile Exchange (Nymex), crude oil contracts for July closed at U.S. $ 106.43 per barrel, up $ 0.46 (0.43%). Oil contracts expire for July on Friday at Nymex; contracts for August closed at U.S. $ 106.05 per barrel, up $ 0.46 (0.44%). The Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), contracts of crude Brent for August closed at U.S. $ 115.06 per barrel, up $ 0.80 (0.70%).
