September 2004

09/11/2004 Press release 19/2004: During the month of September 18.7 million standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 1.1 million Sm3 o.e. lower than during September 2003.

Production is lower due to planned maintenance shut-ins of several fields, technical problems and a strike. Production from the gas-condensate field, Kvitebjørn started in September, 10 years after the field was discovered. The average daily production was about 2 599 000 barrels oil, about 149 100 barrels NGL and about 134 700 barrels condensate.
