It's been a few months since we checked in on Russian production, so above is the graph with the latest public data on the three sources I track (plus Oil and Gas Journal which I haven't updated in a while).
As you can see, Russian production bumped up by 200-250 thousand barrels/day a few months back (due to new eastern siberian production), but since then has been relatively flat.
So there's a bit of a mystery on the production side that I need to track down. As of my last check-in, global production has increased by about 2.0 - 2.2 million barrels/day since the trough of the recession last year:
But of the most obvious suspects, neither Saudi Arabia nor Iraq have contributed much at all to this, and Russia is only responsible for about one tenth of it. I need to figure out which countries are responsible for most of the production increase.
