2011 Gas Production Forecast of Gazprom

Alexey Miller overestimates the 2011 gas production volume

At a recent meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller estimated the 2011 gas production volume of Gazprom at 520 bcm. "Gazprom will have produced about 520 billion cubic metres of gas by the end of the year. Last year we produced around 508 billion", Mr. Miller said.

Mr. Miller's estimation contradicts the production volume for January-November 2011 and the peak production capacity of Gazprom.

Gazprom Gas Production in 2011, bcm



Gas production in January-November 2011




Peak-load daily production capacity of Gazprom


Maximum December production volume (1.63 x 31)


Maximum annual production volume:


Reported average daily production on December 1-5


Anticipated production volume for 2011


A simple math exercise shows that in case of a record cold December, the 2011 production of Gazprom can reach 512 bcm. Under the average conditions, the production level will be close to that of the previous year.
