MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
It is with special pride that I present the Company’s results for 2005, a year in which we set records for
production, profitability and investments. The Company ended the year with an annual daily production of oil
and gas of 2,217 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), consolidated earnings of R$ 23,725 billion and total
investments of R$ 25,710 billion, all historical records.
In order to obtain these results, we implemented a vigorous plan of action based principally on the
continuation of a bold investment cycle that allows us to achieve sustainable returns over the medium and
long-term. This effort, initiated during the administration of President José Eduardo Dutra with whom I shared
the command of the company during 2005, made it possible to restructure our activities and improve our
strategic vision of the future.

One of the underpinnings of our action plan has been continuous massive investment in technological

For each barrel produced, 1.31 was replaced in the reserves. The reserve/production ratio (R/P) was 19.7 years.
New fields that were discovered in the past few years and had commercial viability declared recently (580

in fields that already are in production (300 million boe). The incorporation of existing fields resulted in the
transformation of probable and possible reserves into proved reserves, thanks to development continuity. They also
stemmed from reservoir management practices that sought to enhance oil recovery.

Petrobras approved the initial studies for construction of the Northeast refinery — a strategic project for achieving
sustainable self-sufficiency. With an estimated investment of US$ 2.5 billion, the refinery is to be a joint venture with
Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA), located in the Porto de Suape industrial complex in Pernambuco. It will have
the capacity to process 200 thousand bpd of heavy oil from the two countries and startup is scheduled for 2011.
According to the strategy of offering quality products with low environmental impact, Petrobras initiated
the sale of low sulfur Diesel S500 fuel. The product is sold in the metropolitan areas of São Paulo, Rio de
Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, in the São José dos Campos (SP) region and the Vale do Aço (MG). The supply
of Podium gasoline, which has high performance and less sulfur content, also was expanded thanks to the
startup of production of the fuel at Reduc, in addition to the production that already was taking place at
the Presidente Bernardes–Cubatão Refinery (RPBC).

FERTILIZERS FOR BRAZILIAN AGROBUSINESS
P RO G R AM CALLS F O R 42 N EW VESS E LS BY 2010
Petrobras’ strategy is to increase its participation in the fertilizer segment, mainly nitrogenates, in
view of the fact that a major portion of the demand from Brazilian agribusiness — a sector
that represents 30% of the GDP — is supplied via imports. In 2005, the sales of ammonia
and urea generated net revenues of US$ 330 million for Petrobras, rising 8% over the
The nitrogenous fertilizer plants sold 205,000 tons of ammonia on the domestic market,
the fourth consecutive year in which sales increased. Another noteworthy point regarding ammonia
was the record production of Fafen/SE (400 thousand tons). In the segments of urea used as
fertilizer, Petrobras remained the leader of the domestic market, with sales of 708 thousand
tons during the year.
Seeking improvements in urea logistics and quality, Petrobras initiated construction of a Petrobras is active in the field of the transportation and storage of oil, oil products and gas through its wholly owned

50% of its long haul requirements. The renovation of the fleet also will make it possible for the company to take
advantage of business opportunities that emerge in the field of renewable products, such as alcohol and biodiesel.
The orders for the tankers, financed by the BNDES through funds made available by the Merchant Marine Fund,
have a premise: at least 65% of the ships must be domestic content, which is in line with the guidelines of the
National Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Mobilization Program (Prominp).
Over 20 thousand jobs will be created during construction of the first 26 vessels. By contracting the
manufacturing of the ships in Brazil, Transpetro is contributing to the resumption of large scale naval construction
in the country. It is expected that the dock yards will gain international competitiveness, stimulated by the scale of
production and the incentive for technological modernization, coupled with the training of their professional staffs.

Pipelines and terminals
Transpetro is the operator of the majority of Petrobras’ land-based and maritime terminals, oil pipelines, gas
pipelines and natural gas processing units. This network, which transports a major part of the Company’s
production, was the focus of a number of improvement actions during 2005. The objective is to maintain these
facilities within suitable conditions of operating reliability, assuring the safety of people, installations and the

upon joint projects with Brazilian universities, research now has a central focus on Petrobras as an integrated
the identification of exploration targets with a high degree of probability of an
accumulation of oil and the detection of the exploration risks in ultra-deep waters
and onshore basins. As a result, Cenpes’ participation in solving the Company’s
specific challenges has grown.
Restructuring led to the creation of the Basin Modeling Program (Promob) and a Geophysics Department.
Promob is aimed at running geological simulations designed to reduce exploration risks. The new department will
intensify the development of computer applications, emphasizing 4D seismic imaging used to explore areas with
complex geological compositions.

advances in ultra-deep water areas; and the minimizing of the decline of mature onshore and offshore

objectives is to reduce costs for the Company.
Horizontal wells are one of Cenpes’ technological contributions
for enhancing resources since they increase the flow of oil out of
offshore fields by up to a factor of five — thus making Petrobras’
large projects economically feasible. The use of artificial
oil lifting equipment, installed at a depth of 2,000
meters, also has been a decisive factor for the
development of heavy oil production.

Cenpes’ basic engineering area participated in seven large projects in 2005, including natural gas production
projects in the Santos Basin and heavy oil production projects in the Jubarte field in the Campos Basin. In downstream
activities, it was involved in projects at RPBC, Replan and Repar encompassing improvements in fuel quality, the
reduction of polluting emissions and expansion of heavy oil refining operations. The Center also developed the new
formulation of Podium gasoline in Argentina and continued its research for the production of biodiesel fuel.
Cenpes carried out a number of relationship activities with its stakeholders, strengthening the role of the
Company as a technological leader and adding value to the brand. The Center launched a second edition of the
Petrobras Technology Prize, created in 2004 to encourage the work of researchers and students in the field of oil
and gas. For their innovative contributions to the Company’s oil, gas and energy sectors, the authors of 27 projects
that were selected during the first edition of the Prize received their awards in October.
Petrobras has initiated expansion of Cenpes in view of the new research demands that have emerged in fields
such as the environment, gas and energy. New facilities, totaling 88.7 thousand m2, will be built on its land directly

improve management of this asset in view of the demand stemming from the expansion of its activities.
Among the attributes of the new committee, which is linked to the Businesses Committee, is the preparation
of a brand management operating model, designed to establish the guidelines for use of brand names within the
Petrobras System. By the creation of these guidelines, the Company is seeking greater protection of the asset while,
at the same time, it continues to be involved in the legal defense of its brand in the markets where it is active.
The global management of the brand is in step with Petrobras’ strategy of an integrated effort to increase its
visibility and strengthen the identity of its products and services on the markets. At the corporate level, the
Company has been implementing initiatives that are designed to develop global brands for its products and
services, standardizing the visual aspects of its installations and communication actions.
