ANS production up 5 percent in October

Alaska North Slope crude oil production averaged 743,112 barrels per day in October, up 5.4 percent from a September average of 705,360 bpd.

The largest month-to-month change was at the BP Exploration (Alaska)-operated Endicott field, which averaged 15,644 bpd in October, down 52.5 percent from a September average of 32,930 bpd. This decrease reflects a return to normal volumes on the Endicott pipeline, which had been playing host to some 33,000 bpd of oil from Prudhoe Bay Flow Station 2.
