Petrobras Says Pre-Salt Wells Better Than Expected

(Corrects quantity of oil pumped in first paragraph.)

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil’s state-controlled oil producer, is pumping at least 20,000 barrels a day at most of its deep, so-called pre-salt offshore wells, Chief Executive Officer Jose Sergio Gabrielli said.

The wells are performing better than expected, he told reporters today in Doha, Qatar. The company, known as Petrobras, will decide after 2015 on producing liquefied natural gas at offshore floating facilities, Gabrielli said.

Brazil’s cost of producing new oil will average less than $43 a barrel between now and 2035, he said.
