According to the ministry, daily oil production stood at 790,700 barrels in November, of which 735,800 barrels accounted for crude oil and 54,900 barrels for condensate.
Meanwhile, 643,400 barrels of crude oil, 54,900 barrels of condensate and 15,000 barrels of oil products were exported per day.

The agreement was signed for the first half of 2017, and on May 25 it was extended by late 1Q18. At the latest OPEC meeting in Vienna, the agreement was extended until the end of 2018.
