RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazilian state-run oil firm Petrobras exported 1.11 million tonnes of fuel oil in May, beating the company’s previous all-time record set in February by 10%, the company said in a securities filing on Friday.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, has made exports of bunker fuel to China a priority. Bunker fuel is a type of fuel oil used by ships.
