Russia raised oil output 1.5% to 418.9 mln tonnes in 9M - CDU TEK

MOSCOW. Oct 2 (Interfax) - Russia's oil and gas condensate output grew 1.5% year-on-year to 418.9 million tonnes or 11.25 million barrels a day in January-September 2019, the Central Dispatching Department of the Fuel and Energy Complex (CDU TEK) said.

Russia produced 46.04 million tonnes in September alone, down 1% year-on-year. Average daily production was 11.25 million tonnes.

Oil production was down 4.6% from October 2018, the reference point for the deal between OPEC and non-OPEC countries to curb output.

Rosneft produced 145.91 million tonnes in 9M and 16.21 million tonnes in September alone, Lukoil - 61.54 million tonnes and 6.71 million tonnes, Surgutneftegas - 45.34 million tonnes and 5.03 million tonnes, Gazprom Neft - 29.69 million tonnes and 3.21 million tonnes, Tatneft - 22.35 million tonnes and 2.42 million tonnes, Bashneft - 13.97 million tonnes and 1.52 million tonnes, Slavneft - 10.5 million tonnes and 1.19 million tonnes, Novatek - 6.27 million tonnes and 665,110 tonnes and RussNeft - 5.35 million tonnes and 576,600 tonnes.

Rosneft bought a controlling stake in Bashneft in mid-October 2016, but CDU TEK statistics still count Bashneft's data separately.

Other mineral developers, including gas giant Gazprom and joint ventures with foreign partners, produced 61.89 million tonnes of oil and condensate in 9M, including 6.81 million tonnes in September. CDU TEK did not give a separate figure for gas giant Gazprom.

Production-sharing project operators produced 14.54 million tonnes in 9M and 1.55 million tonnes in September.
