The National Petroleum Directorate said preliminary data for April show a daily production of 1.7 million barrels of oil, 377,000 barrels of natural gas liquids and 31,000 barrels of an ultra-light form of oil called condensate.

The preliminary data for April is 2 percent below March figures and, for oil, was lower by about 30,000 barrels per day.

Apart from Russia, Norway is one of the largest oil and gas producers in the region and the country sends nearly everything it produces offshore to the export market.
