Without providing comparison data for the previous year's revenues, the company's PCA - in statements to the press, cited by Angop - also highlighted the strengthening of the administrative and operational organization and the environmental aspect in the blocks in which it operates, whose actions also contributed to success in revenue matching.
In terms of production fields, he clarified that profound changes were made, which were embodied with the exchange of technological tools that were already out of use, exemplifying with the change from diesel generators to gas in order to supply electricity to the areas of operations.
According to the official, cited by Angop, the referred change allowed eliminating the constant burning of gas in the oil blocks, as well as saving money used in the acquisition of fuel for the diesel generators.
In terms of the company's current production, the CEO of the oil company said that it is close to 25,000 barrels a day, which is guaranteed by more than 1000 employees.
On the occasion, he also made it known that the company is exploring for crude oil in high risk blocks, found and in exploration since the 70s, without unforeseen events, writes Angop.
According to the official, cited by Angop, the oil company currently operates in four blocks with an equal number of concessions, including three on land (two in production and one in exploration).
