Executive Summary

Petrobras is one of the companies that have used SAS in Brazil the longest - more than 15 years. Petrobras wanted to analyze massive amounts of data in order to accurately identify areas likely to produce oil. To master these challenges Petrobras chose SAS. Constructing analytic models with SAS makes it possible for Petrobras to identify rock breaks that produce oil or gas, significantly increasing the output of oil and helping to recuperate hydrocarbon supplements. Using SAS, Petrobras has achieved record results, including a daily record output of 2,000,238 of oil on Dec. 25, 2007. The previous record was 1,000,912 barrels.
