Petrobras reduces refinery processing to 69%

Bulletin released last Tuesday (6) by the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) shows that the global load of oil processing in Petrobras refineries decreased in the last week, reaching 69.2% of capacity last Sunday (4). On the same day as the previous week, the figures were 76.8%. According to the MME, the fall occurred due to a stop at the Recap (Capuava – SP) and Reduc (Duque de Caxias – RJ) refineries.

With this reduction, production at the state-owned company's refineries fell to the lowest level since the beginning of June, when the level of processing was at 65%, according to data from the portfolio. In April, at the height of the impacts of the pandemic, the level reached 55%.
