ISTANBUL, October 11. /TASS/. Rosneft Board of Directors has not yet discussed contraction of oil production in view of possible participation of Russia in market stabilizing measures, Chief Executive Officer of BP and member of Rosneft Board Robert Dudley said on the sidelines of the World Energy Forum.
"Oil production of Rosneft is gradually growing. We have not discussed with the Board of Directors. I think anything is possible. Production can go up or not," he said.
