Petrobras (PBR Free Report) recently came out with a blueprint to increase its five-year investment plan by 15% to $78 billion for augmenting spending across exploration, production and refining during the 2023-27 period.
PBR expanded planned investments between 2023 and 2027 by $10 billion compared with the 2022-2026 plan, reflecting higher drilling costs. The hike in spending comes despite a reduction in the production target for 2023 by 100,000 barrels of equivalent oil per day (boed) to 2.6 million boed.
The Brazilian state-owned oil major also sanctioned additional short-term drilling for existing projects above its long-term break-even of $35 per barrel. Exploration and production will make up 83% of the spending, with the output to increase to 3.1 million boed by 2027.
Moreover, Petrobras more than doubled its current decarbonization fund of $248 million and planned to boost spending to reduce carbon emissions to 6% of the total compared to 4% in the previous plan. However, Brazil’s President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s transition team might review PBR’s business plan next year to reflect the new government’s priorities.
Headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Petroleo Brasileiro S.A., or Petrobras S.A., is the largest integrated energy firm in Brazil and one of the largest in Latin America. PBR’s activities include the exploration, exploitation and production of oil from reservoir wells, shale and other rocks, as well as refining, processing, trading and transportation.

At the center of everything we do is a strong commitment to independent research and sharing its profitable discoveries with investors. This dedication to giving investors a trading advantage led to the creation of our proven Zacks Rank stock-rating system. Since 1988 it has more than doubled the S&P 500 with an average gain of +24.51% per year. These returns cover a period from January 1, 1988 through September 12, 2022. Zacks Rank stock-rating system returns are computed monthly based on the beginning of the month and end of the month Zacks Rank stock prices plus any dividends received during that particular month. A simple, equally-weighted average return of all Zacks Rank stocks is calculated to determine the monthly return. The monthly returns are then compounded to arrive at the annual return. Only Zacks Rank stocks included in Zacks hypothetical portfolios at the beginning of each month are included in the return calculations. Zacks Ranks stocks can, and often do, change throughout the month. Certain Zacks Rank stocks for which no month-end price was available, pricing information was not collected, or for certain other reasons have been excluded from these return calculations.
