LONDON (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>Brazil’s state oil, gas and petrochemicals major Petrobras aims to cut operational and sales costs by reais (R) 5bn ($2.5bn) to R15bn in 2013, according to media reports on Friday.
The reports, from Reuters and Brazil’s O Globo newspaper, said Petrobras had announced the cuts at an internal company presentation on Thursday. Petrobras’s media officials were not immediately available for comment.
In August, Petrobras reported a second-quarter loss as exploration and other costs rose faster than revenues.
Petrobras is a partner in a planned petrochemicals project, the Complexo Petroquimico do Rio de Janeiro (Comperj).
