Lukoil Pumps Oil at West Qurna-2, Sees Sales by Year-End

OAO Lukoil, Russia’s second-largest oil producer, pumped the first oil from the West Qurna-2 project in Iraq and expects to start sales this year, helping the war-ravaged nation expand output and rebuild its energy industry.

Well 139, completed by U.S. contractor Baker Hughes Inc., produced high-quality light oil following perforation, Lukoil’s overseas arm said in its corporate magazine.
