OSLO Oct 4 Statoil's gas production on
the Norwegian continental shelf was reduced by another 19
million cubic metres (mcm) per day due to unplanned outage, the
company said on Thursday.
The company reported earlier its output was to be reduced by
8 mcm per day, and the outage was expected to last for one day.
Statoil did not provide the duration for the latest outage
or the installation affected.
Statoil produced 109.7 million cubic metres of gas per day
in the second-quarter.
The company has to report outages according to the market
transparency rules of the European Union, where its main
customers are, though Norway is not an EU member state.
