The total production in January 2015 was about 19.8 million Sm3 oil equivalents. (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 7.6 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 1.9 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 10.3 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total volume is 0.2 MSm3 o.e. higher than for the same month in 2014.  

The definition of the sales product from the more mature fields that have supplied condensate to Kårstø has been changed. In connection with starting production on Gudrun, the sales product was redefined to an oil (Gudrun blend).

Final production figures from December 2014 show an average daily production of about 1.578 million barrels of oil, 0.412 million barrels of NGL and condensate and a total of 10.9 billion Sm3 saleable gas production.
