Crude sales surpassed one billion and 800 million dollars, gas and condensate revenues amounted to 53 million dollars, petroleum products hit 53 million dollars, and petrochemicals revenues exceeded three million dollars.
The total net revenue from oil sales in US dollars closed up to one billion and 900 million dollars, according to the NOC.
