Production from  Snøhvit  was closed in November due to planned maintenance. Production from Vale and Volund was also closed due to technical problems.

Until further notice, the Factpages will not be updated with production figures for November 2009. This is due to technical problems.

So far this year the average daily production has been about 2.0 million barrels of oil and the total liquid production  about 2.3 million barrels. Total production so far is about 217.8 million Sm3 o.e. This is 1.7 million Sm3 o.e. less than in the same period last year.
