Gazprom Neft production reaches pre-pandemic level

Gazprom Neft, Russia’s fastest-growing oil company in terms of output, has restored its production to pre-COVID levels, Vadim Yakovlev, the company’s first deputy CEO, said.

He also said that the company is ready to tackle curbs on Russian oil from the West over what Moscow calls a “special military operation” in Ukraine, which forced Russian companies to seek new markets and cut supplies to Europe and the US.

“As far as the oil embargo is concerned, the restrictions, which are being created, regulatory, logistic ones, do not have a direct impact on total demand,” Yakovlev said.

“It leads to overhaul of logistic routes as we leave for new markets,” he added.

He said such “ineffective” logistics inflate delivery costs.

In 2021, Gazprom Neft produced some 101 million tons of hydrocarbons, including 62 million tons of crude oil.

The official declined to disclose the latest production figures and forecasts publicly.
