MOSCOW, April 23 Russia's No.2 crude producer Lukoil has increased its 2013 investment programme to $20 billion from the earlier planned $16 billion, Russian news agencies quoted the company's chief executive as saying on Tuesday.

Lukoil has been struggling to stabilise its production in Russia at its depleted fields and has been aggressively acquiring upstream assets abroad, including Iraq's huge West Qurna-2 oilfield. (Reporting by Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Maria Kiselyova)
