Preliminary production figures show an average daily production of about 2.216  million barrels oil and 0.480 million barrels NGL and condensate for April 2006. Low production in april is due to planned maintenence on Kvitebjørn, Njord, Skirne, Snorre and Vigdis together with the fact that Visund was shut-in during the whole month. Final figures will be published in the beginning of June 2006.
