PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil (ICIS)--Brazil-based Petrobras will continue to import gasoline and diesel before the first of four new refineries starts up in 2013, the company said on Tuesday.
In 2011, gasoline imports will triple, said Sergio Gabrielli, Petrobras president. He made his comments to a conference in Singapore.
The four new refineries will add more than 1.4m bbl/day of oil-products capacity, bringing the total to 3.2m bbl/day by 2020, he said.
By 2020, Brazil could start exporting 67,000 bbl/day of oil products, he said.
