The UK’s crude and natural gas liquids (NGL) production increased by 9 percent annually to reach 1.18 million bpd in the first quarter of 2019, S&P Global Platts quoted statistics from the UK Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy as showing on Thursday.

The UK’s crude oil production alone increased by 11 percent to 1.08 million bpd in Q1, according to the government statistics quoted by Platts—a welcome sign for the UK oil and gas industry which has managed to reverse a years-long downward trend in recent months, thanks to start-ups of projects in the North Sea.

 

According to the UK Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, provisional figures for 2018 showed that UK crude oil and NGL production rose by 8.9 percent compared to 2017, mainly due to multiple new projects on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) coming online in late 2017 and 2018 and increasing production through the year.

Daily (17.10.2019): NBP spot slumped by over 8% on Wednesday amid firmer Norwegian exports and lower gas-for-power demand

Speculations about a potential extension of crude supply cuts by OPEC and its allies as of December led to a recovery in crude oil prices on Wednesday. The greenback’s slide coupled with short covering in anticipation of an industry report on U.S. crude inventories also contributed to the market rally. Still, concerns over tighter crude demand and expectations for higher crude stocks in the U.S. limited gains. Against that backdrop, Brent crude rose by 1.2% to 59.42 USD/bbl, while WTI futures advanced by 1% to 53.36 USD/bbl.
