Volga Gas plc, the oil and gas exploration and production group operating in the Volga Region of Russia, is pleased to provide the following update on its average production volumes for November 2019.


Production Report


The average production in November 2019 was 4,687 barrels of oil equivalent per day (50% higher than October 2019). Higher production resulted from greater plant uptime as the gas plant downtime caused by Gazprom pipeline maintenance and LPG expander equipment erection works in October 2019 was not repeated. The LPG expander was successfully set-up and is currently in a testing phase.
