Increase in the Brazilian crude oil and NGL production (12%) over 1S-2004, generating an increase in the participation of national crude oil in the total volume processed by the refineries (80% in 1S-2005 as compared to 75% in the same 2004
Increase in health care costs (Assistência Médica Suplementar (AMS))and pension costs (Petros Plan), as a result of the actuarial calculation review carried out at the end of 2004.
