Petrobras on production in 2021 and 2022 target

Rio de Janeiro, January 14, 2022 - Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras confirms the achievement of its production targets for the year 2021, with the following results:

 

Production Performed Goal
Oil and NGL (MMbpd)1 2.22 2.21 + 4%
Oil, NGL and commercial gas (MMboed)2 2.46 2.43 + 4%
Oil and total gas (MMboed) 2.77 2.72 + 4%
1 million barrels per day
2 million barrels of oil equivalent per day

 

The highlights of 2021 were:

· the start of production from FPSO Carioca, the first platform in the Sépia field, in the Santos Basin pre-salt;
· own production in the pre-salt, which totaled 1.95 MMboed in 2021, representing 70% of Petrobras' total production;
· the signing and start of the co-participation agreement for the Búzios field, which regulates the coexistence of the Transfer of Rights Agreement and the Production Sharing Agreement of the Transfer of Rights Surplus for the field;
· the conclusion of the sale of the totality of its stake in the offshore fields of Frade, in Campos Basin, and Lapa, in the Santos Basin pre-salt, the onshore clusters of Rio Ventura, Miranga and Remanso, in Bahia, and Cricaré, in Espírito Santo, and the onshore fields of Dó-Ré-Mi and Rabo Branco, in Sergipe;

The achievement of this result shows Petrobras' commitment to meeting its goals, which have been reached by maintaining the focus of its activities on deep and ultradeep water assets, where it has shown a great competitive differential over the years, producing better quality oil and with lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Revision of the 2022 production target

Following up on the release disclosed on December 17, 2021, Petrobras informs the revision of the oil and gas production target for 2022 to reflect the effect of the result of the 2nd Round of Bids for the Transfer of Rights Surplus under the Production Sharing Regime.

With the start of the effectiveness of the Production Sharing Regime in Atapu and Sepia, scheduled for early May 2022, the shares of each party in the shared fields, including the portions of the Transfer of Rights Agreement and the Concession Agreements, will become:

 

Atapu
Partners Stake in the shared deposit
Petrobras (operator) 65.69%
Shell Brasil 16,66%
TotalEnergies EP 15.00%
Petrogal Brasil 1.70%
Pré-sal Petróleo – PPSA 0.95%

 

 

Sépia
Partners Stake in the shared deposit
Petrobras (operator) 55.30%
TotalEnergies EP 16.91%
Petronas 12.69%
QP Brasil 12.69%
Petrogal Brasil 2.41%

 

The start of production sharing for FPSOs P-70 and Carioca, operating in the Atapu and Sépia fields, respectively, will impact Petrobras' production target disclosed in the 2022-26 Strategic Plan. In the year 2022, we will have a reduction in the amount of 70 Mboed for the total production of oil and gas, and the change of the range from 2.7 MMboed to 2.6 MMboed with a variation of 4% up or down. Oil production and commercial production had an impact of about 60 Mboed, but remained with the same ranges, respectively, 2.1 MMbpd and 2.3 MMboed, with a variation of 4% up or down. For the period between 2023 and 2026, the average estimated impact for production is a reduction of 0.1 MMboed.

For Atapu, Petrobras will receive compensation before the gross up, in the amount of US$ 1.5 billion, by April 15, 2022. In the case of Sépia, the amount is US$ 2.2 billion, and the date of receipt is still under negotiation with the sharing consortium. The portion of the bonus due by Petrobras for the two fields, in the amount of R$ 4.2 billion, should be paid in 1Q22.

Regarding the investments for 2022, the announced forecast of US$ 11 billion is maintained. Throughout this year, the Development Plans for the production of the surplus volumes in Atapu and Sépia will be discussed with partners and PPSA, which should include the implementation of a new production system in each field. These adjustments will be reflected and disclosed in the Strategic Plan 2023-27.
