The increase resulted from production going on stream in the Akpo field and in new fields in the Agbami field, both in Nigeria. Petrobras’ average oil and natural gas production in Brazil in 2009 was 2,287,457 barrels of oil equivalent (boe), 5.1% more than a year ago (2,175,896 barrels/day). Oil production only topped-out at the daily average of 1,970,811 barrels, a 6.3% increase over 2008, when the average was 1,854,655 barrels per day.
