Preliminary production figures for September 2015 show an average daily production of about 1 864 000 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate. This is 58 000 bpd (about 3%) less than August 2015.
Total gas sales were about 9.3 billion Sm3, which is 0.3 GSm3 less than previous month.
The average daily liquid production in September was: 1 543 000 bbls, 279 000 barrels of NGL and 42 000 barrels of condensate. The oil production is 4.8% above the oil production in September last year.
The oil production is about 12.0% above the NPD’s prognosis for the month.
The total petroleum production for the first nine months in 2015 is about 168.1 million Sm3 oil equivalents (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 67.2 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 16.3 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 84.6 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total volume is 10.0 MSm3 o.e. higher than for the same period in 2014. Final production figures from August 2015 show an average daily production of about 1.556 million bbls, 0.365 million bbls of NGL and condensate and a total of 9.6 billion Sm3 saleable gas production.Adapted from a press release by Louise Mulhall
