Brazilian Gas Availability Up 4.5% In June

(Argus, 19.Jul.2021) — The amount of Brazilian natural gas output offered to the market after flaring, loss and reinjection rose by 4.5pc in June from a year earlier and by 1.7pc from the prior month, to 58mn m³/d (2.04 Bcf/d).

The increase is the result of a 5.6pc boost in total Brazilian gas production in comparison to June 2020 and a 0.9pc increase from the prior month, preliminary data from Brazil’s oil and gas regulator watch role models essay title see cheap cialis pills uk e marketing bachelor thesis privacy preserving data mining research papers source link english essay science in the service of man rotterdam rules thesis meclizine over the counter walgreens source site pharmacie pas de la case cialis click here see url free essays in english for class x essay on global warming for class 10 names for generic cialis che ricetta ci vuole per il viagra math homework help live chat go to link clarin viagra blue diamond shaped viagra pill splitting viagra tablets ANP shows.

Total production reached 135mn m³/d in June. The country’s record production level set in January 2020 is 138.7mn m³/d.

Natural gas reinjection in June reached 60mn m³/d, 10pc more than the same month in the prior year, and a 0.6pc increase from the month prior. Some natural gas that is produced from oil and gas wells in Brazil is pumped back into the wells to repressure the reservoir and increase future oil production.

Natural gas flaring decreased by 0.1pc in June from a year earlier and rose by 6.1pc compared to May.

As nearly 90pc of Brazilian gas production is associated with oil output, producers may choose to reinject the gas to elevate oil production or because of restrictions in gas processing, transporting or trading. The incentive to reinject should drop when pre-salt flow gas pipeline Rota 3 starts operation, expected this year. The pipeline has a capacity of 20mn m³/d.
