Saudi Output Rivaling Russia

KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia's crude production rose to close to a 31-year high in January, matching Russia's for the first time in six years, according to the Joint Organization Data Initiative.

Saudi Arabia increased output by 0.6 percent to 9.87 million barrels a day in January, the second-highest monthly level since at least 1980, data posted Sunday on JODI's website show. It was the same as Russian production for the first time since February 2006.

The figure differs from the Russian Energy Ministry's estimate of output of 10.36 million barrels a day in January.


… 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.
