The Russian gas giant began March by producing just over 1.3 bcm per day, lowering this first by 80 million cubic meters and, in the period March 12-17, by another 90 million cubic meters (the later reduction taking place in three phases). It produced a steady 1.219 bcm per day between March 17 and March 29, when it started to scale output down further.
