Danish oil production decreases yet again

Now it’s at the same level it was in 1992, according to a new report from the energy authority Energistyrelsen. The figures reveal that oil production in the North Sea fell to 9.1 million cubic metres – vastly lower than the 22.5 million cubic metres in 2004, when levels peaked. “Danish oil production in 2015 was about 5 percent lower than expected,” the report found. “There has been a focus on preventive maintenance and well maintenance, while continuing the development of the South Arne field with a new northern platform. Production from the new wells via South Arne’s northern platform and Tyra SE has contributed to lessening the fall in production.” Meanwhile, natural gas production remains about the same compared to 2014 thanks to the production of 3.8 billion normal cubic metres (NM3).
