Shell help leverage Brazilian oil production

According to Shell, the anglo-Dutch company had participated in 10% of the total oil production in Brazil in December 2016. The number is highly relevant compared to same period in 2015, when the oil company was approximately 1% of the national production. The leveraged occurred after the company bought the BG and so become a partner of Petrobras in the pre-salt layer fields.

In this way, the Shell went on to occupy an important space in the petroleum industry. According to the National Agency of petroleum, Natural gas and biofuels (ANP), production in Brazil reached 2,730,000 barrels per day, in December last year by obtaining a high of 7.8% over the same period to 2015. Already the pre-salt layer was 1.262 million barrels per day, 46% of the amount of December.
