MOSCOW - OAO Lukoil Holdings, Russia's No. 2 oil producer, will invest $1 billion in the oil firm Samara-Nafta to increase production, Russian news agencies reported Monday, citing a company presentation.

Lukoil acquired Samara-Nafta from Hess Corp. this month for $2 billion as part of a strategy to stabilize and increase oil production. Lukoil has for years fought declining output at its main, Soviet-era fields in Western Siberia.
