Petrobras also announced that the optimization of operating costs and the acceleration of production has resulted in an average cost of extraction below US$ 7 per barrel of oil equivalent. “In the oil industry, accelerating project production is synonymous with anticipating the recovery of employed capital, which is crucial for generating cash and restoring Petrobras' financial health,” declared the oil company.
