    The 300000bpd equivalent is the natural gas

  • Guest

    the article says first:
    brazilian production of oil equivalent (oil+gas) was 2’021’357 bpd.
    Then it says :
    Average daily production of petroleum and LNG in Brazil attained 1,746,138 BOEs in March !

    There is a difference of around 300’000 bpd of oil equivalent missing somewhere at someplace.

    disappeared, evaporated, wrong numbers, or stolen ?
