As the head of the holding Aleksey Miller informs, from the first to the 26th of October the gas monopoly extracted 35 milliard and 100 million cubic meters of gas in comparison to 32 milliard and 800 million cubic meters during the analogous time of last year.

The company in short time 1.5 times increased daily production and set the absolute record. Extracted 1 milliard and 556 million cubic meters is the highest index of daily production in October during the whole history of the company. In recalculation per year, it is 568 milliard cubic meter.
