In brief: Brazil’s Petrobras posts record income

* Brazil’s state-owned oil company Petrobras has released its latest quarterly earnings report, which shows that it made a record profit in 2021. The company posted a net income of R$106.7bn (US$21.3bn), well over double its previous record of R$40.1bn, posted in 2019.
