Specifically, overall gas sales were 10.2 billion Sm3 (GSm3), which is a reduction of 0.6 GSm3 from the month before.
Average daily liquids production in April was 1,380,000 barrels of oil, 320,000 barrels of NGL and 29,000 barrels of condensate.
In addition, oil production in April is 0.6% less than the NPD’s forecast, and 1.7% below the forecast so far this year. The main reasons that production in April was below forecast is technical problems on some fields.
The total petroleum production for the first four months in 2019 is about 75.8 million Sm3oil equivalents (MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows:
- 26.8 MSm3 o.e. of oil;
- 6.8 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate;
- 42.2 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale.
Finally, the total volume is 3.1 MSm3 o.e. lower than in 2018.
