The average daily liquid production in October was: 1 402 000 barrels of oil, 274 000 barrels of NGL and 75 000 barrels of condensate. The oil production is 9 percent below the NPD’s prognosis for October and 5 percent below the oil production in October last year.

The following fields had reduced production in October due to planned maintenance/repair work:  Alve, Balder, Draugen, Fram, Heidrun, Kristin, Marulk, Norne, Skuld, Tordis, Tyrihans, Urd and Vigdis.  The Njord field has been shut down since the 27th of July and will most probably not be back in production until summer 2014, due to reinforcements in the platform structure.

So far this year the oil production is on level with the NPD’s prognosis.
