13/01/2005 Press release 2/2005: During the month of November 22.8 million standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 0.6 million Sm3 o.e. lower than during November 2003. Production is lower due to technical problems on several fields.
The average daily production was about 2 766 000 barrels oil, about 256 300 barrels NGL and about 195 300 barrels condensate.
So far this year the total production is about 241.0 million Sm3 o.e. This is 2.9 million Sm3 o.e. more than in the same period last year. During this time frame, approx. 150.1 million Sm3 oil has been produced, only 2.1 percent lower than the NPD prediction for the same period.
Preliminary production figures show an average daily production of about 2.582 million barrels oil for December 2004. Final figures will be published in the beginning of February 2005.
Please note that the table with updated production figures for the Norwegian shelf has been moved to the NPD's fact-pages. The overview shows complete history per field and total production per month and year.
