18/12/2020 Preliminary production figures for November 2020 show an average daily production of 2 026 000 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate.

Average daily liquids production in November was: 1 725 000 barrels of oil, 290 000 barrels of NGL and 12 000 barrels of condensate.

On 29 April 2020, the Government decided to implement a cut in Norwegian oil production.

The production figures for oil in November include this cut of 134 000 barrels per day in the second half of 2020. 

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 November is equal to the NPD’s forecast, and 1.9 percent below the forecast so far this year.
