The development of the Yaregskoe field and Permian reservoir of the Usinskoe field, including the launch of new steam-generating capacities, allowed increasing high viscosity oil production in the first quarter of 2019 by 16% year-on-year, to 1.2 million tonnes.

The development of growth projects in West Siberia also continued. Overall oil and gas condensate production at the V. Vinogradov, Imilorskoe and Pyakyakhinskoe fields increased in the first quarter of 2019 by 14% year-on-year.

In the first quarter of 2019 refinery throughput at LUKOIL Group's refineries was 16.7 million tonnes, which in average daily terms is 0.2% higher quarter-on-quarter and 3.4% higher year-on-year.

Refinery throughput in Russia increased to 11.0 million tonnes, which in average daily terms is 2.6% higher quarter-on-quarter and 2.9% higher year-on-year. The increase was due to higher utilization rate of the Nizhny Novgorod refinery.

Lower quarter-on-quarter refinery throughput in Europe was driven by feedstock supply disruptions through the port of Novorossiysk due to weather conditions. Higher year-on-year refinery throughput in Europe was driven by the maintenance works at the refineries in Bulgaria and Italy in the first quarter of 2018.
