SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazilian state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA expects to inject $3.4 billion into its employees’ pension fund, Petros, over the next 25 years, the company said on Tuesday.

Petrobras said in a statement that a calculation made in December forecast a future deficit in its Petros Fundacao pension fund of 33.7 billion reais ($7.26 billion).
