Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that he favoured OPEC and its non-OPEC allies to make a decision on whether to extend the crude oil production curb agreement closer to the group’s meeting in April next year, Russian news agency TASS reported on Friday.

“Gas condensate accounts for 7-8% of Russia’s total oil production,” Novak further added.
