Independent oil producer Exillon Energy said group production increased by 24% to a combined total of 5,400 barrels per day.

Exillon said the total was reached on 12 June due to higher production from its assets in West Siberia (Exillon WS).

Production at Exillon WS will increase to 2,600bpd in the second half of June, the company said.

On completion of additional infrastructure projects, the remaining behind-pipe production capacity of 3,400bpd will be added to the production flow, increasing Exillon WS’s combined production to 6,000bpd.
