Rosneft cuts upstream operating costs, Q3 results hit by pandemic, OPEC+ cuts
Rosneft cut its third-quarter upstream operating costs by 3.4% on the quarter to $2.8/b of oil equivalent, as liquids output continued to slide due to constraints under the OPEC+ agreement and implications from the coronavirus pandemic, the company reported Nov. 13 in its financial results.
Rosneft's Q3 liquids production was down 16.2% on the year and 2.1% on the quarter to 48.51 million mt, or 3.91 million b/d, as the company was allowed to produce more in April, when the new OPEC+ deal was not yet in force.
Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin lauded the company's ability "to work successfully in difficult conditions of crude oil output restrictions and relatively low hydrocarbon prices."
"Significant achievements of the third quarter include a reduction of upstream operating costs to $2.8/boe and a decrease in interest costs by 24% in USD terms year on year," he said in a release.
Rosneft's overall liquids output in January-September amounted to 4.19 million b/d, down 10.3% on the year, it said.
