Alaska North Slope Oil Production down 3.9% YTD

ANS oil production continues to lag 2013, now down 3.9% YTD vs the same period last year.  With spring around the corner and no major maintenance issues presently, the risk of a low flow viscosity issue is fading for now.  Declines vary by field, with Alpine the primary culprit for the lower volumes, though Prudhoe and Kuparuk are also lagging 2013.  View the full PDF Report for field level production.
