In 2023, Petrobras achieved the best annual historical result in the torch gas burning rate in the Natural Gas Processing units linked to the company's Industrial Processes and Products Directorate, reaching the mark of 0.16%. The indicator measures the percentage of gas burning in relation to the total production of the units.

The result reflects the company's efforts to seek operations with greater efficiency and lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, contributing to the Company's strategic objectives, in the constant search for operational excellence, one of the fronts of our Carbon Neutral Program, with a positive impact on the environment and people.

Between 2017 and 2023, there was a 78% reduction in the indicator, going from 0.72% to 0.16%, demonstrating the consistency of the historic drop. It is estimated that this improvement over the period corresponds to 971 thousand tons of CO2 equivalent that were no longer emitted, considering the rates from the first year of the period as a reference. It is worth mentioning that the total processing capacity of the plants that undergo this measurement is 65.2 million m3/day.

For the director of Industrial Processes and Products at Petrobras, William França, the result achieved reflects the integration between the technical team and the company's strategic objectives. “We are aware of Petrobras' commitment to achieving levels of excellence in its performance, but the reach of a brand like this also demonstrates how important what is one of the company's main objectives is for us, to promote a fair energy transition”, celebrates France.

The Director of Energy Transition and Sustainability at Petrobras, Maurício Tolmasquim, highlighted that Petrobras reduced its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 39% between 2015 and 2022. “Measures to gain efficiency in operations like this are essential for us to achieve our commitments to reduce emissions more effectively and at lower costs”, comments Tolmasquim.
