  • Production of oil comes from seven fields in two geographical areas; Tunisia and Norway.
  • On the Didon field in Tunisia, the production well Didon-5 was gradually put back to production in August, after a shut-in since the start-up of the new well Didon-7. The production in August has been affected by the drillings at the field during the month, as well as extensive testing of the Didon-5 and Didon-7 wells with periods of reduced or no production.
  • The Volve field in Norway has delivered record production above the planned field plateau level from two oil producers during the month. The second water injection well was also completed. However, due to a planned maintenance shutdown at the gas export receiving platform, the production for the total period is reduced.
  • During the month, a new Group record peak production was achieved, with a total of 22,200 barrels of oil on a single day. Over a period of five days it was demonstrated that the Group’s total production capacity was above 20,000 barrels of oil per day. However, due to reduced uptime of wells and facilities, the average Group production amounted to 15,600 barrel of oil per day during August.
