Production figures June 2020

17/07/2020 Preliminary production figures for June 2020 show an average daily production of 1 857 000 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate.

Average daily liquids production in June was: 1 543 000 barrels of oil, 298 000 barrels of NGL and 17 000 barrels of condensate.

On 29 April 2020, the Government decided to implement a cut in Norwegian oil production. The production figures for oil in June include this cut of 250,000 barrels per day.  

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate’s oil production forecasts  have been updated in the Government’s proposed Revised National Budget for 2020.

This was presented on 12 May. The update takes the authorities’ oil production regulation into account, as well as delayed start-up of fields under development and oil production in the first quarter.

Oil production in June is 4.1 percent under the limit set in connection with the production adjustment for June.
