Rosneft to raise output as soon as current OPEC+ deal ends
Russia’s state oil company Rosneft is planning to lift oil production as soon as the current OPEC+ deal ends, according to a person close to the company.
The comments, the first Russian response to the oil price war launched by Saudi Arabia over the weekend, suggest that Rosneft could start boosting output as soon as April 1.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that Rosneft had prepared for any scenario and would be able to withstand the current plunge in oil prices. Asked how rapidly Rosneft could increase production, the person said analysts who estimate the company could boost output by 300,000 barrels a day within a week or two are well informed.
Rosneft Chief Executive Officer Igor Sechin is a close ally of President Vladimir Putin and has been the most prominent naysayer of the country’s cooperation with Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to curb oil production.
