Petrobras’ refineries increased oil processing by 34,000 barrels per day in 2014, its sixth consecutive annual record for oil processing.

Besides the increased processing at distillation units in 2014, there was also strong performance in facilities that are part of the diesel and gasoline production process, according to Oil & Gas Technology.

Petrobras’ refineries in Brazil achieved a new annual oil processing record in 2014. The average volume processed was 2.1 million barrels of oil per day (bpd), up 34,000 bpd (1.7 percent) from the previous record, set in 2013.

In addition, Petrobras also achieved a number of monthly records at its refineries, with the amount processed rising from 2.151 million bpd in March to 2.172 million bpd in June, for example.

Besides the increased processing at distillation units in 2014, there was also strong performance in facilities that are part of the diesel and gasoline production process.

This performance is the result of improved operational efficiency obtained through the integrated management of Petrobras’ downstream system, contributing to lower imports of oil products. These records were achieved while respecting the health, safety and environmental principles that underpin the company’s actions.
