Russia's Bashneft says 2015 Net Income up 35%


MOSCOW, March 14 (Reuters) - Mid-sized Russian oil producer Bashneft, which is included into Kremlin's privatisation plans, said on Monday its 2015 net income jumped by 35 percent to 58.2 billion roubles ($832.5 million) thanks to rising oil production.

The company, where the 75 percent stake is split between the state property agency and the Republic of Bashkortostan, also said its last-year revenues declined by 4.1 percent to 611.3 billion roubles following a slump in oil prices.

Oil production rose last year by 12 percent to 19.9 million tonnes, while refining volumes dropped by the same magnitude to 19.1 million tonnes.
