RIO DE JANEIRO Jan 28 (Reuters) - Brazil's Petrobras reported a third-quarter non-audited net profit on Wednesday of 3.09 bln reais ($1.20 billion) after its board said it was "impractical" to estimate the value of expected charges against earnings related to a corruption scandal.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, also said it is exploring ways to revise the results to account for the corruption-probe-related charges in a manner in line with securities regulations in Brazil and the United States.

The result was delivered more than two months after the deadline for releasing the results under Brazilian law.
