MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian oil and gas condensate production edged up to 9.93 million barrels per day (bpd) in September, Interfax said on Friday, citing Energy Ministry data that suggests Russia slightly exceeded its quota under a global supply pact.
This was up from 9.86 million bpd in August and in line with what sources told Reuters a day earlier.
In tonnes, oil and gas condensate production stood at 40.65 million tonnes for September, against 41.7 million tonnes in August, which is one day longer.
The OPEC+ producer group’s global deal excludes condensate, a type of light oil, some 700,000-800,000 bpd of which Russia pumps on average. Moscow’s quota is now 9 million bpd of oil.
The increase followed a decision by OPEC+ to ease curbs on output to 7.7 million
