The average daily liquid production in October was: 1 681 000 barrels of oil, 265 000 barrels of NGL and 75 000 barrels of condensate.

The Following fields had reduced production in October, Gjøa due to planned maintenance, Grane due to problems with the gas injection compressor and Njord, Tordis, Visund and Volve due to technical problems. Still, total oil production is somewhat higher than the NPD’s prognosis for the year to date.
