The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate noted that the average daily production on the Norwegian Continental Shelf was about 1,941,000 barrels of oil, about 271,000 barrels of NGL (Natural Gas Liquids) and about 61,000 barrels of condensate, a total of 2,273,000 barrels of liquid. In June, 17.8 million standard cubic metres of oil equivalents (Sm3 o.e.) were produced. This is 1.7 million Sm3 o.e. higher than in June 2007.
Several fields have been partly closed due to planned maintenance in June and Snohvit field was closed whole month according to plan.
So far this year the average daily production has been just above 2.1 million barrels of oil and a total of 2.4 million barrels of liquid. The total production is about 122.0 million Sm3 o.e. This is 3.5 million Sm3 o.e. higher than in the same period last year.
Preliminary production figures for July 2008 show an average daily production of about 2.190 million barrels of oil and 0.372 million barrels of NGL and condensate.
Norne and Urd have been partly closed due to planned maintenance in July.
