Norway hit a new record in crude oil production this July. According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD), Norway registered a 5% increase compared to July last year. NPD explained, “High production from several fields ensured that oil production in July was the highest since May 2012.”
Due to this boost, it is expected that Norway will achieve its 2013 oil production goal. NPD said, “So far this year oil production is about 0.5% below the NPD’s prognosis.” This increase in oil production is due to new offshore developments in Norway, such as the Johan Sverdrup oil discovery. This was the biggest find in Norway and it contributes 3.3 million barrels of recoverable oil to Norwegian oil production.
Other fields, such as Johan Castberg in Barents Sea, make Norway believe in a revival of the Norwegian industry. The same trend is followed by the Gas sector. In July this year, Norway sold 9.2 billion cubic meters of gas, more than 2.2% compared to last year.
