The country’s daily oil output has amounted to 10.26 million barrels, setting a second historic record in two months.
The previous record, set in September, was 10.16 million barrels.
In October, Russian companies extracted 42 millions tons of oil in total, which is 25 more than in September. Also, 420 millions tons overall were extracted in ten months, which is two times more than in the same period last year.
Last year, Russia had already become the world’s large producer. Now it aims to keep up the pace of extracting above 500 million barrels a year until 2020.
The Russian government, however, admits it will need trillions of rubles to keep the extraction rate up.
