NORWAY'S PETROLEUM PRODUCTION UP TO 93 TBD
NPD - Preliminary production figures for July 2017 show an average daily production of 2 000 000 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate, which is an increase of 93 000 barrels per day compared to June.
Total gas sales were 10.6 billion Sm3 (GSm3), which is an increase of 2.0 GSM3 from the previous month and is higher than ever for the month of July.
Average daily liquids production in July was: 1 622 000 barrels of oil, 346 000 barrels of NGL and 32 000 barrels of condensate. The oil production is about 7.0 percent below the oil production in July last year and is about 0.7 percent below the NPD's prognosis for July 2017. The oil production is about 1.2 percent above the prognosis so far this year.
The total petroleum production for the first seven months in 2017 is about 140.1 million Sm3 oil equivalents (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 55.5 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 13.1 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 71.5 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total volume is 2.1 MSm3 o.e. higher than in 2016.
Final production figures from June 2017 show an average daily production of about 1.570 million barrels of oil, 0.337 million barrels of NGL and condensate and a total of 8.6 billion Sm3 saleable gas production.

THE LOCAL FRANCE - Angola and French oil giant Total formally launched a major new offshore oil project Saturday to aid the country's economy that plunged into crisis following oil price dips in 2014.
WNN - China's State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) says it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for "global cooperation" in nuclear energy with Westinghouse Electric Company of the USA.
WNN - Advanced Nuclear Technologies - otherwise known as small nuclear or small reactor technologies - encompass a wide range of nuclear reactor technologies under development, BEIS noted. "The common attributes that these technologies share is that they are smaller than conventional nuclear power station reactors and are designed so that much of the plant can be fabricated in a factory environment and transported to site, reducing construction risk and making them less capital-intensive," it said.
WNN - Poland and the USA have signed a Joint Declaration of Energy Security, which emphasises the expansion of their cooperation in a variety of areas, including civil nuclear energy. The document was signed in Warsaw yesterday by Polish Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchórzewski and US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
