The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate reported that average daily production for Norway in June 2010 was about 1,785,300 barrels of oil, NGL and condensate. This is 411,700 barrels less than in May 2010. 

The liquid production in June was 1,531,000 barrels of oil, 194,700 barrels of NGL and 59,600 barrels of condensate. 

Production from the fields in the Ekofisk area were closed periodically in June due to planned maintenance, the Vale field was closed due to technical problems. Heidrun was closed June 1-26 due to maintenance, and Gullfaks C was closed due to well problems. 

So far this year the average daily production has been about 1.9 million barrels of oil and the total liquid production about 2.2 million barrels. 

Preliminary production figures from July 2010 show an average daily production of about 1.804 million barrels of oil and 0.314 million barrels of NGL and condensate. 

Production from Oseberg and Heidrun was reduced due to technical problems. The Vale field was closed due to technical problems and the Gimle and Tordis fields were closed due to barrier-weakness in well.
