The Didon field in Tunisia has for the month of December maintained good regularity and production both with respect to wells and facilities.

Similar, the Volve field in Norway has maintained as good performance during the month with production from two production wells.

In the period, production of oil came from seven fields in two geographical areas; Tunisia and Norway. PA Resources has finalized the sale of its Norwegian subsidiary, as earlier communicated. This will temporarily reduce the Group’s total production and sale of oil during the coming months until the Azurite field in the Republic of Congo has started its production in 2009.
