RIO DE JANEIRO, June 15 (Reuters) - Brazil state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA stopped output on Sunday from its P-40 platform in the offshore Marlim Sul field after a gas leak on the vessel, an oil workers' union said on its website on Monday, citing worker reports.

The P-40, a semi-submersible production platform, was producing about 45,915 barrels (7,300 cubic meters) of oil and 800,000 cubic meters of natural gas a day when it was shut down, the union said. Petrobras did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
