UPDATE 1-India's June oil output falls to lowest in 4 months

 (Adds details)
    July 22 (Reuters) - India's crude oil production in June fell 6.8% from a year earlier to
about 2.69 million tonnes, the lowest since February, provisional data issued by the government
showed on Monday.
    Natural gas output was 1.6% lower at 2.64 billion cubic metres during the same period, the
data showed.
    Indian refiners processed 20.30 million tonnes of crude oil in June, the lowest since
February. 
    Refinery output declined 7.1% compared with the same period last year, the Ministry of
Petroleum and Natural Gas said in the release, as many state refiners shut units for
maintenance. 
    Among the key refineries affected by shutdowns in June were Reliance's 330,000
barrels-per-day (bpd) Jamnagar refinery and Indian Oil Corp's 120,000 bpd Barauni
refinery.
    Crude output in May had dipped about 7% from a year earlier to about 2.80 million tonnes.
Output has been declining month-on-month since December 2017.
    Indian oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on July 16 the country had adequate oil supplies
to compensate for lost imports from Iran.
    India halted imports from Iran after the United States in May withdrew exemptions to import
crude from Iran despite sanctions against the Middle East producer. 
    
        
    Following are details of refinery throughput and crude oil output:
