Russia's oil exports surge in H1 2002

Russian crude oil exports soared 24 percent in the first half of 2002compared to the corresponding period last year, despite an agreement withOPEC to hold output steady over that period.Russian customs data showed that Russia, heavily reliant on energyrevenues, boosted exports via major ports and pipelines to Europe and alsogave oil firms free rein to increase exports via alternative routes, suchas through routes neighboring Ukraine and Belarus.

Howeve,rRussian authorities made no concrete pledges.Crude oil exports from Russia to western and central Europe rose inJanuary-June by 7.7 percent to 72.1 million tons, or 2.92 million barrelsper day (bpd) from 66.9 million tons, or 2.71 million bpd in the sameperiod of 2001, the Russia Journal reported..
