Norway Cuts Oil Production to Help Stabilise Market
Norway will cut oil production for the rest of the year to help speed up a stabilisation in the oil market, the country's Minister of Petroleum and Energy said late Wednesday.
The coronavirus pandemic and efforts to contain it in large parts of the world have had a substantial impact on economic activity globally and therefore also for oil demand, the government said.
In the current unprecedented situation, Norway said that cuts to oil production will contribute to a faster stabilisation of the oil market compared with letting the rebalancing take place only though the market mechanism.
As part of the plan, production on the Norwegian continental shelf will be reduced by 250,000 barrels a day in June and by 134,000 barrels a day in the second half of 2020, while the start-up of production of several fields will be delayed until 2021.
The measures--set to end by the end of the year--will see total Norwegian production in December 2020 at a level of 300,000 barrels a day less than originally planned.'
