BRASILIA, Aug 4 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-run Petrobras will probably not meet its oil and gas production target for 2014 because of continued delays in the startup of new offshore oil platforms, a government source with direct knowledge of the situation told Reuters on Monday.
Petrobras set a 2014 goal of increasing output by 7.5 percent, plus or minus one percentage point, hoping to break a string of missed targets caused by declining output from its largest existing fields and delays in new areas.
