Offshore staff

CALGARY, CanadaCanadian Natural Resources (CNR) has issued an update on its international E&P operations.

2Q represented the first full quarter of production at the company’s operated Espoir and Baobab fields offshore Côte d’Ivoire following completion of an infill drilling program.

Oil production rose by 81% from the 1Q level, averaging 30,858 b/d. However, crude oil operating costs also increased from $15.62/bbl to $20.13/bbl due to the timing of liftings from various fields.

CNR’s oil production from its UK northern North Sea fields averaged 23,360 b/d in 2Q, comparable to 1Q, helped by increased reliability and waterflood optimization.

Operating costs were down 15% on 1Q levels at $40.74/bbl.
