February 2005

12/04/2005 Press release 7/2005: During the month of February 20.8 million  standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 2.0 million Sm3 o.e. lower than during February 2004.

The average daily production was about 2 657 000 barrels oil, about 283 000 barrels NGL and about 152 000 barrels condensate.

The decrease in production is due to planned maintenance, technical problems, reduced production on Snorre and delays in drilling programs on several fields.
