Russian oil output declined to 11.38 million barrels per day (bpd) in January, or by around 35,000 bpd from the October 2018 level, the baseline for the global oil accord, missing the deal's target, Energy Ministry data showed on Saturday.
This was down from 11.45 million bpd in December, a record monthly high. In tonnes, oil output reached 48.113 million versus 48.442 million in December. Russian oil pipeline exports in January fell to 4.313 million bpd from 4.496 million bpd in December.
Rosneft , the world's largest oil producer by output, reduced its production by 0.1 percent last month from December, while second-largest Russian oil producer Lukoil saw production cuts of 0.8 percent. Output at Rosneft's largest unit, RN-Yuganskneftegaz, declined by 0.8 percent after a blaze ripped through Priobskoye oilfield in early January.
Production at Gazprom Neft , the oil arm of gas giant Gazprom , edged up by 0.1 percent.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak has said the country's overall cuts would total 50,000 bpd in January from October.
