NORWAY: GAS 21%
Norway, the world's third-largest natural gas exporter after Russia and Qatar, supplied 21% of total European gas needs in 2013, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration.
EIA estimates that Norway produced 3.97 tcf of dry gas in 2013, a decline of 0.18 tcf from 2012. As a result of its modest domestic demand, Norway's net exports for 2013 were 3.8 tcf of gas, representing 96% of its production.
"Norway's natural gas reaches the Continent mainly via its extensive export pipeline infrastructure, while a small fraction is exported as LNG by tanker. The largest recipients of Norway's natural gas exports in 2013 were the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Belgium," EIA said.
Norway's single largest gas field, Troll, produced 1 tcf in 2013, according to estimates from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, which accounted for 27% of Norway's total gas production that year. Three other major producing fields in 2013 were Ormen Lange (0.76 tcf), Asgard (0.34 tcf), and Kvitebjorn (0.24 tcf). These four fields produced over 60% of Norway's total dry gas in 2013.

IEA - For the third consecutive year, global energy investment declined, to USD 1.8 trillion (United States dollars) in 2017 – a fall of 2% in real terms. The power generation sector accounted for most of this decline, due to fewer additions of coal, hydro and nuclear power capacity, which more than offset increased investment in solar photovoltaics.
EIA - Crude oil production from the major US onshore regions is forecast to increase 143,000 b/d month-over-month in July from 7,327 to 7,470 thousand barrels/day , gas production to increase 1,066 million cubic feet/day from 69,466 to 70,532 million cubic feet/day .
U.S. FRB - Industrial production rose 0.6 percent in June after declining 0.5 percent in May. For the second quarter as a whole, industrial production advanced at an annual rate of 6.0 percent, its third consecutive quarterly increase. Manufacturing output moved up 0.8 percent in June.
U.S. DT - The sum total in May of all net foreign acquisitions of long-term securities, short-term U.S. securities, and banking flows was a net TIC inflow of $69.9 billion. Of this, net foreign private inflows were $58.8 billion, and net foreign official inflows were $11.1 billion.
