LONDON (Reuters) –

The world's oil production dropped by 2 million bpd, or 2.6 percent, which was also the largest decline since 1982, the British oil major said.

The world's gas reserve grew by 2.21 trillion cubic meters last year, while production fell by 2.1 percent, marking the first decline on record, BP said.
