Compared to crude data, the significant difference is due to the fact that there were two fewer working days in December 2023 than in December 2022, KSH notes.
Production volume fell in December 2023 in the great majority of the manufacturing subsections. Output grew in only three subsections, at the highest rate in the manufacture of coke, and refined petroleum products.
