Global energy producers have reported a big increase in earnings for last year thanks to a recovery in demand from pandemic-related lockdowns, mainly in 2020.
The company, Russia’s fastest-growing in terms of output, also said its hydrocarbon production exceeded 100 million tonnes of oil equivalent (mtoe).
“In 2021, the company reached the 100 mtoe milestone for the first time in its history, having doubled production within ten years,” Gazprom Neft’s head Alexander Dyukov said in a statement.
“This was one of the key targets we had set ourselves as part of the company’s long-term strategy. We also see opportunities for further production growth in 2022 and beyond.”
The company has said it expects hydrocarbon production to increase by 5% annually from 2023 to 2024, after an expected rise of 10% in 2022.
