Petrobras attributed the performance in part to resumed production at the P-37 platform in the Marlim field following a programmed shutdown in January.
The start of production at the Cottonwood field in the US and improved performance in Ecuador were also behind the increase.
Domestic production increased 1.1% to 1.80Mb/d and international output in eight countries climbed 2.7% to 131,306b/d.
Petrobras' international production came from operations in Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, the US and Venezuela. Argentine output made up the bulk of this production with 57,193b/d.
As for domestic production, offshore and onshore output was 1.56Mb/d and 231,900b/d respectively, the statement said.
