Nov 26 Brazil's state-led oil company Petrobras
said Monday that output of petroleum and natural gas
fell for a fifth straight month in October compared with a year
earlier because of maintenance and declining productivity in the
offshore Campos Basin.
During the month, Petrobras produced an average 2.58 million
barrels of oil and natural gas equivalent a day (boed) in Brazil
and abroad, 1.3 percent less than the 2.62 million boed in
October 2011, the Rio de Janeiro-based company said in a
Domestic and international output of oil and natural gas was
4.4 percent greater than in September and the highest since May.
