December 2004

11/02/2005 Press release 3/2005: During the month of December 23.0 million standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 1.5 million Sm3 o.e. lower than during December 2003.

 

Oil production NCS 2003-2004

 

During the month of December 23.0 million standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 1.5 million Sm3 o.e. lower than during December 2003. Production is lower due to a gas leak on Snorre A and technical problems on several fields. The average daily production was about 2 578 000 barrels oil, about 280 500 barrels NGL and about 158 900 barrels condensate. Gasoline is now included in the NGL sum (included in condesate before).

In 2004 the total production was about 264.0 million Sm3 o.e. This is 1.5 million Sm3 o.e. more than in 2003. During this time frame, approx. 162.8 million Sm3 oil has been produced, only 3.0 percent lower than the NPD prediction for the same period.
