Crude Exports Down 1.2%

Russian crude exports dropped 1.2 percent in 2011 as domestic refining increased.

Exports reached 266 million tons, or 5.34 million barrels a day, last year, according to preliminary data from the Energy Ministry's CDU-TEK unit released on Jan. 2.

Exports to the Commonwealth of Independent States were 30 million tons. Shipments excluding the CIS were 211 million tons via Transneft's pipelines and 25 million tons outside of the national oil pipe operator's system. Production climbed 1.3 percent last year to an average of 10.27 million barrels a day, according to CDU-TEK.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
