Norway's Aker BP’s oil and gas production decreased by 4.5 percent in the third quarter to 150,600 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) compared to the second quarter of this year due to maintenance at two of its fields, the company said on Friday.
The Norwegian company, which is 30 percent owned by BP produced 157,800 boed in the second quarter of 2018.
Aker BP's production from Valhall field increased less than expected.
The company said that it was due to a longer than planned well testing program.
"As a result, some of the production growth that was expected from Valhall in the third quarter has been moved to coming quarters," it explained.
