Oil Output Maintains Peak

Oil output in Russia stayed at a post-Soviet monthly high of 10.36 million barrels per day in February as companies tried to reap extra gains from high oil prices, the Energy Ministry said Friday.

The same level was reached in January, while Russia's previous oil production record of 10.34 million bpd was hit in November and October.

Russian oil production remained ahead of Saudi Arabian output, which rose to 9.85 million bpd from 9.75 million bpd. Oil prices are near 10-month highs on expectations of reduced supply from Iran due to sanctions and talk of military action against the Islamic republic over its nuclear program.

… 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.
