TNK-BP Venture Boosted

TNK-BP said Wednesday that it plans to increase production of heavy oil at its Venezuelan joint venture PetroMonagas by 20 percent in 2013.

TNK-BP owns 16.7 percent of the venture, while Venezuela's national oil company PDVSA controls 83.7 percent.

The company said it intends to increase its heavy oil production at the venture, where it acquired the stake from BP in 2010, to 145,000 barrels per day next year. In December, it said PetroMonagas was poised for 9 percent output growth in the first quarter of 2012, to 120,000 bpd.


… 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.
