NO ASA, the Norwegian oil and gas operator, has announced suspension of production in Yemen due to the continuing deterioration of security conditions.

Prior to the suspension, combined production from Block 32 and Block 43 averaged 1,950 barrels of oil per day (bopd) on a gross basis and 950 bopd on a company working interest (CWI) basis.

The company continues to monitor the situation closely and has initiated plans to secure its facilities and remove non-essential staff. All expatriates were previously relocated to Dubai.
