June 5, 2006 -- Russia's LUKoil plans to double its production in the next 10 years.
That would boost its daily output to 4 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), a measure used for giving production figures that include both oil and natural gas.
LUKoil Vice President Leonid Fedun also said on June 5 that LUKoil also hopes to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. It is already listed on the bourses in London and Moscow.
