Sebastião says that the drop in production is something natural and predicted for a long time, since oil is a finite resource, but despite this, Petrobras will not leave the city, because it has made several interesting discoveries in recent months, such as the pre- salt from the Campos Basin that is very promising and the revitalization technologies, which will make the city one of the main producers for many years to come.

Currently, there are 4 Petrobras Operating Units (OU's), 2 in the Santos Basin and two in the Campos Basin, the idea is to balance production in all of them, so that one does not produce much more than the others and with this reorganization , the assets of Marlim Leste and Sul will be on the route of the nervous system of Macaé and the units that will be responsible will be the UO-RJ and UO-BC.
