21/06/2017 Preliminary production figures for May 2017 show an average daily production of 1 980 000 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate, which is a decrease of 128 000 barrels per day compared to April.
Total gas sales were 9.3 billion Sm3 (GSm3), which is a decrease of 1.2 GSM3 from the previous month. “The decline in gas sales is as expected, caused by natural fluctuations in the market,” says assistant director Kirsti Veggeland.
