Petrobras continues to expand the supply of diesel with low-sulfur content product. Increasing product availability is one of the company’s initiatives to improve energy efficiency. In May, the company surpassed the S-10 diesel sales record for the third consecutive month, reaching the 450,000-bpd mark, which represents an increase of 3% when compared to the previous record of 437 thousand bpd, in April 2021. Total diesel sales also continue to increase. In May, fuel sales reached 812,000 bpd, up 17.1% from sales in May 2020. In the comparison with May 2019, without the impacts on demand resulting from the pandemic, there was growth of 12.7%. As in recent months, the increase in supply also reflects the company’s efforts to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on fuel demand.
