Third quarter oil and gas production was 402,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, up from 344,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the third quarter of 2011, primarily reflecting an increase in production from the Bakken oil shale play and the resumption of operations in Libya.

At the Waha concessions in Libya, net production averaged 23,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the third quarter of 2012.
