The discrepancy between preliminary production (published November 19th) and final production volume in October is due to the fact that the Johan Sverdrup field started production, and unavailable volumes are subtracted (pipeline volumes and minimum stock level).

The total petroleum production for the first eleven months in 2019 is about 195.0 million Sm3 oil equivalents (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 73.1 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 17,5 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 104.4 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale.
The total volume is 14.8 MSm3 o.e. lower than in 2018.
