Gazprom PJSC forecasts a conservative natural gas production outlook for 2019, based on warm weather and growing competition from Russian-piped super-chilled fuel.

“We plan to produce 495 Bcm of gas this year,” deputy CEO Vitaly Markelov said in an interview to the in-house publication, reiterating a conservative forecast the company’s executives made in February.

 

That volume would mark Gazprom’s first drop in output in five years, from 497.6 Bcm in 2018. The energy company revises its output plans several times a year based on demand in Europe, its largest market. The region currently has plenty of gas in storage after a warm winter reduced consumption.

Oil prices continued to climb on Friday, in response to weaker Euroilstock data, which showed a decrease in the total crude and product inventories of 16 European countries in July. Prices also drew support from OPEC supply cuts and Saudi Arabia’s commitment to bring the oil market back to balance. Hence, Brent crude rose by 2% to $58.53 a barrel. Concurrently, WTI futures surged by 3.7% to $54.50 a barrel, on lower production growth forecasts after U.S. drillers slashed the active oil rig count for a sixth straight week.
