MOSCOW, Jun 4 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs average daily oil output rose 0.1% on the year to 10.966 million barrels per day in May, and fell by 281,000 barrel per day as compared with October 2016, Bloomberg reported on June 2 citing CDU-TEK, which provides data and analysis to RussiaТs Energy Ministry.

In November 2016, OPEC and non-OPEC states agreed to reduce their oil production to rebalance the market.

The agreement was prolonged until the end of 2018 in November 2017.
