Liquid production 2013
Gas production 2013
The total petroleum production for the first five months in 2013 is about 91.2 million standard cubic meters oil equivalents. (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 35.4 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 9.0 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 46.8 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total oil volume is 4.5 MSm3 o.e. (about 11 percent) less than for the same period in 2012.
Final production figures from April 2013 show an average daily production of about 1.502 million barrels of oil, 0.381 million barrels of NGL and condensate and a total of 9.1 billion Sm3 saleable gas production.
