SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil’s Petrobras said on Tuesday that four platforms in the Buzios field located in the Santos Basin, off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, achieved a daily record output on Monday.

The platforms, called P-74, P-75, P-76 and P-77, produced a combined 674,000 barrels per day of oil and 844,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The Buzios field is considered the largest deepwater oilfield in the world, Petrobras said.
