NORWEGIAN ARCTIC OIL GAS DOWN
Oil and gas production in northern Norwegian fields dropped significantly in the course of 2013.
The Snøhvit field, so far the only operating project in the Barents Sea, produced a total of 3,76 million sm3 of gas, a decline of 24 percent compared with 2012. Likewise, practically all of the fields located in the Norwegian Sea off the coast of the Nordland County had falling production figures.
In total, the north Norwegian oil production in 2013 dropped 16 percent to a total of 5,13 million Sm3, while the regional gas production fell 16 percent to 6,06 million SM3, figures from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate show. The figures include production at the fields of Snøhvit, Heidrun, Morvin, Norne, Urd and Yttergryta.
Norway’s total production in the period totaled 213,7 million Sm3, a 4,9 percent decrease from 2012 and 49,8 percent less than at peak production in 2004.

U.S. EIA - In December 2018, U.S. shale and tight plays produced about 65 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas (70% of total U.S. dry gas production) and about 7 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil (60% of total U.S. oil production). A decade ago, in December 2008, shale gas and tight oil accounted for 16% of total U.S. gas production and about 12% of U.S. total crude oil production.
