Oil production 2017
Oil production is approx. 4 percent lower than the NPD's forecast, and about 1.7 percent below the forecast this year.
The main reasons that production in December was below forecast is that Goliat was closed until the 17th of December and technical problems and maintenance work on some other fields.
