Norway's April oil output showed a decrease of 24,000 barrels per day compared to March, according to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) Wednesday.
Production was 0.6% lower than the NPD forecast, and 1.7% below the forecast so far this year, the directorate said.
NPD explained that the main reason for the lower than forecast production was due to technical problems in some fields.
The country's total gas sales for April also saw a monthly fall of 0.6 billion cubic meters compared to March to reach 10.2 billion cubic meters.
The Nordic country's daily production of oil, natural gas liquids and condensate was about 1.73 billion barrels of oil equivalent for the month of April, according to the statement.
