OSLO, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Norway's oil and gas output in
December rose from the previous month, preliminary data from the
Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) showed on Thursday.
Crude oil output increased to 1.84 million barrels per day
(bpd) in December from 1.73 million bpd in November, broadly in
line with an official forecast of 1.85 million, the NPD said.
Natural gas production in December rose to 10.9 billion
cubic metres (bcm) from 10.1 bcm a month ago, above a forecast
of 10.4 bcm, it added.
