LUKOIL REPORTS PRELIMINARY OPERATING DATA FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2017

​​The LUKOIL Group's oil production for the first quarter of 2017 was 21.8 million tons or 1,789 thousand barrels per day. Production change compared to the first quarter of 2016 was mainly driven by the reduction in compensation crude oil from the West Qurna-2 project in Iraq.

Average daily production excluding this project was 0.8% lower compared to the first quarter of 2016, mainly due to the temporary external limitations of production volumes by the Russian companies. However, production growth continued as planned at V. Filanovsky and Pyakyakhinskoe fields that were brought into production in the second half of 2016. Production drilling volumes in West Siberia increased as well, which should positively impact production profile in the region.

Refinery throughput at the LUKOIL Group's refineries for the first quarter of 2017 was 16.2 million tons. The 2.4% year-on-year volumes growth was mainly attributable to the increase in the utilization rate at our refineries in Perm, Volgograd and Burgas. The quarter-on-quarter dynamics was driven by planned maintenance works at our refineries in Nizhny Novgorod and Romania.
