The average daily liquid production in November was: 1 443 000 barrels of oil, 250 000 barrels of NGL and 74 000 barrels of condensate.

The total oil production on the Norwegian shelf is 15 per cent below the prognosis for November. This is mainly due to planned maintenance and technical problems on Gjøa, Njord, Troll and Åsgard. Both The Valhall and Hod fields have been closed for the entire month due to preparation in front of production start for a new platform. Ula, Tambar and Oselvar fields have also been closed most of the month due to hydrocarbon leakage on Ula. In addition, Yme and Skarv should have contributed to the production in November according to the prognosis, but these fields will not contribute to achieving the NPD prognosis for 2012, although production from Skarv is scheduled for December. However, Visund Sør started production at the end of November.

The oil production is also about 4.0 percent below the cumulative prognosis this year.
