May 6, 1997 Production of oil and natural gas liquids in the North Sea averaged 5.94 mm bpd in March, down 187,000 bpd, or 3 %, from February, according to the latest figures from analysts Wood Mackenzie. These include 2.49 million bpd of offshore UK output.
Wood Mackenzie said Norwegian production dropped significantly during the month mainly because of weather-related problems at offshore loading fields. Norway pumped an average 3.2 mm bpd in the period, down 173,000 bpd from a month earlier, the analysts' figures showed. Output was reduced at Statfjord and satellites Statfjord East and North, and Snorre and Draugen due to loading problems.
Throughput at the Heidrun development in the Norwegian Sea dropped by 34,000 bpd to average 142,000 bpd, while the Yme field increased output by 47 %, or about 14,000 bpd, to 43,000 bpd.
Wood Mackenzie said Danish oil/NGL production rose by around 11,000 bpd in March to return to January's level of 228,000 bpd. The majority of the increase was contributed by theSven field, which raised production by 6,000 bpd.Dutch oil/NGL production was steady from February at around 35,000 bpd, the report said.
