Abstract: Abstract The theme related to the oil production in the Brazilian territory is not limited to the extraction means, distribution and use of this product, and involves political, cultural and environmental axes. The paradigm shift in relation to the market aspects of petroleum is proving to be an issue for new academic discussions and future possibilities. This research aims to analyze the framework of the oil production in Brazil, based on the main contributions of this theme to the academic environment in the national and international spheres. The profiling of oil production in Brazil was conducted by bibliometric analysis, which is a fundamental tool to identify ideas and concepts inserted in a given context. This tool through a query of data from two databases was applied, the national platform Scielo Brazil, and the international platform Science Direct. As a result of the research, it was possible to verify the centralization of the theme in some research axes, verifying new approaches to the oil context at different scales of research.
