MOSCOW DISCLOSES LITHUANIAN OIL PRODUCTION
The U.S.S.R. for the first time disclosed that the breakaway Lithuanian republic has commercial oil production. That runs counter to earlier portrayals that Lithuania completely lacks petroleum resources (OGJ, Apr. 30, p. 34). Lithuania has 20 oil wells capable of yielding 3,358 b/d, Moscow newspaper Rabochaya Tribuna (Worker's Tribune) reported. Lithuania's normal oil consumption is about 121,000 b/d, it said.
