    'At approximately'?

    Hi,
    How should 'approximately' be used with 'peak' in the following sentence, please?

    '...the oil production reached its peak at approximately 80 million barrels per day...'

    Re: 'At approximately'?

    I think, '...reached a peak of approximately 80...' is considered a correct usage. However, I was wondering if 'at+approximately' or 'at+about' are correct or not?

    Both versions are fine, Mehrgan.
