MOSCOW, January 30. /TASS/. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak discussed the oil price drop and the future prospects of investment projects with heads of oil and gas companies, the ministry reported on Friday.

According to preliminary estimates, the oil output in Russia will stay at the level of 2014, Novak said. In 2014, Russian oil output reached 527,000 million tons of oil, which is a 0.6% rise compared with the previous year, said the Central Dispatching Department of the Fuel and Energy Complex (CDU TEK), an agency that provides data and analysis to the Energy Ministry.
