Consolidated international oil and NGL production increased due to the start-up of production in Nigeria in July 2008, partially offset by the reduction in Ecuador due to the sale of part of the interest in Block 18.
Consolidated gas production decreased by 4% due to the reduction in Brazils imports of Bolivian gas and lower consumption by thermal plants as a result of increased production by the hydro plants, offset by the higher interest in Sierra Chata, in Argentina, in the 4Q-2008.
Consolidated international oil and NGL production moved up due to the start-up of the Akpo Field, in Nigeria, in March/2009, partially offset by the reduction in Colombia due to the reduced share of the Guando field in the Boqueron Association, and the reduction in Argentina thanks to the 20-day strike in August/2009.
