The country’s 2019 production reached a further post-Soviet high, marking another year Moscow fell short of cuts promised to its Opec partners
Russia’s oil and gas condensate output totalled 560.2mn t in January-December 2019, or 11.25mn bl/d, according to data from the country’s energy ministry data, up from 555.8mn t (11.16mn bl/d) in 2018.
