The average sales price for crude oil and natural gas liquids in the 2012 third quarter was $98 per barrel, down from $103 a year earlier. The average price of natural gas was $6.03 per thousand cubic feet, compared with $5.50 in last year’s third quarter.Net oil-equivalent production of 1.88 million barrels per day in the third quarter 2012 was down 58,000 barrels per day from a year ago. Production increases from project ramp-ups in Thailand and Nigeria were more than offset by planned maintenance-related downtime, continued shut-in of the Frade Field in Brazil and normal field declines. The net liquids component of oil-equivalent production decreased 8 percent to 1.25 million barrels per day, while net natural gas production increased 8 percent to 3.78 billion cubic feet per day.
