OPEC maintains oil supply forecast at 3.81 bpd

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) maintained its forecast of 3.81 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) in the country this year. The information came through the monthly report of OPEC, released on Thursday (10).

Still, the forecast for this year represents an advance of about 100,000 bpd compared to 2020. The report shows that initial projections for production in Brazil were affected by restrictive measures against covid-19 on Petrobras platforms.

The Organization also added that the Brazilian offer will be boosted by the start of the FPSO Carioca platform, scheduled for the beginning of the second half. "The FPSO Carioca will be installed at a depth of 2,140 meters in the water and has the capacity to produce 180,000 bpd of crude oil and 212 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas," he said.
