Petrobras refinery breaks production record of VLSFO bunker fuel for the second month

13 Jul 2020

Rio de Janeiro-based oil and gas company Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) on Wednesday (8 July) said its Paulínia Refinery (Replan) broke its monthly production record for VLSFO bunker fuel for the second consecutive month. 

In June, the refinery reached 148,000 cubic meters (cbm), 20% higher than the previous record recorded in May, which was 123,00 cbm, it said. 

The increase in production in June was due to the resumption of operations of its distillation unit (U-200A) and catalytic cracking unit (U-220), to meet the increased market demand for derivatives. 

With the return of these units, the refinery again has the capacity to process 69,000 cbm of oil per day, the largest in Petrobras’ refining facility, noted the company.
