The oil production is about 1 percent above the NPD’s prognosis for the month.

(MSm3 o.e.), broken down as follows: about 7.3 MSm3 o.e. of oil, about 1.9 MSm3 o.e. of NGL and condensate and about 10.5 MSm3 o.e. of gas for sale. The total volume is 1.7 MSm3 o.e. less than for the same month in 2012.
