Petrobras has announced it has beaten its record for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) in 2022, by injecting 10.6 million tons (9.6 million tonnes), which is equivalent to 5.8 billion m3 of CO2.

This amount corresponds to around 25% of the total amount of CO2 injected by the industry as a whole last year, according to the Global CCS Institute. This achievement confirms the company as a world leader in injecting CO2, and helps it to meets its strategic aims to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its operations.

Currently, all 21 platforms operated by Petrobras that are working in the pre-salt of the Santos Basin incorporate CCUS technology for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), and performance is continuing to improve. Injecting the gas into the reservoir increases production efficiency and reduces the overall GHG emissions, based on emissions per barrel produced.
