Increased gas production contributes to steady total production of petroleum
In spite of falling oil production, increased gas production contributed to that the total petroleum production only decreased by 0.7 per cent in the first half of 2010.
The Norwegian oil production peaked in 2000, in the following years the production have declined. In the first six months of 2010 the oil production ended at 53.4 million Sm3 o.e., this is 4.1 million Sm3 o.e. or 7.2 per cent less then in the same period in 2009. (Changed 22 October 2010)
The production of NGL ended at approximately 8 million Sm3 o.e., about 1 per cent more than the same period last year. Production of condensate ended at 2.1 million Sm3 o.e, a 8.6 per cent decrease.
Production of oil including NGL and condensate ended at 63.6 million Sm3 o.e., 6.3 per cent or 4.2 million Sm3 o.e less than the first six months last year.
Increased gas production
In the six fist months of 2010, the gas production ended right beneath 57 million Sm3 o.e. This is 3.4 million Sm3 o.e or 6.4 per cent more than the fist six months last year. The production of gas equalled about 47 per cent of the total petroleum production. The oil production equalled about 44 per cent, while NGL and condensate made out 7 and 2 per cent respectively.
Two new fields started oil and gas production in 2010; Tyrihans and Volund.
