There will always be a problem on Petrobras value at the NY exchange, It is a public company, managed by a chosen board that does just about anything the governors tell them to do!
Very unpredictable where, when and how wisely the money will be used. If the federal government breaks down, you can certainly count with a big issue on the companies' operation.

How does Petrobras acomplish such plus output yielld?

That willl be convenient to know how does Petrobras made such increase production of 30,000 BPD crude oil process more.

I consider they must had the extra thermal capacity to proces 30,000 BPD Oil crud more. Because you can not process something that you can not heat up before actually.

I get stunned with such process yield increase without an step work of reconfiguring their refineries Such oil process realm can not come oout of the blues

I cannot understand why Petrobas has such a louzy performance at the New York Exchange. Is their profit taken for other Projects. Are these Projects Company related or to the benefit of the government?
