(Petrobras) met its average domestic oil output goal
for a second consecutive year, the Brazilian state-controlled
company said on Wednesday, as it looks to improve offshore
exploration and production.
Production in 2016 rose by about 0.8 percent to an average
2.144 million barrels per day, Petrobras said in a securities
filing, in line with a target of 2.145 million barrels.
Production in December reached an average 2.3 million
barrels per day, it said.
