Russian oil output falls to 11.12 mln bpd for May 1-29 - sources

MOSCOW, May 30 (Reuters) - Russian oil output fell to 11.12 million barrels per day (bpd) for May 1-29 from 11.23 million bpd in April, two industry sources told Reuters on Thursday, as the country deals with fallout from a crisis over tainted oil in the Druzhba pipeline.

The May 1-29 daily average was the lowest since June 2018, when output fell to 11.06 million bpd, Energy Ministry data showed. It was also down from 11.13 million bpd for May 1-26 on average.

Russia's recent oil output is below the 11.18 billion bpd target Moscow has pledged as part of an international deal among producers to curb production to support prices. (Reporting by Olesya Astakhova and Gleb Gorodyankin Writing by Vladimir Soldatkin Editing by Edmund Blair)
