Russia's Lukoil Says Oil Output Exceeds 100M Tons in 2015, Up 3.5%


MOSCOW, Dec 29 (Reuters) – Russian second-largest oil producer Lukoil said on Tuesday its yearly crude oil output had surpassed 100 million tonnes (2 million barrels per day) for the first time.

It rose by 3.5 percent from a year-ago period thanks to higher output at its West Qurna-2 oilfield in Iraq, as well as in Timan-Pechora, Perm and Caspian regions in Russia.
