CNOOC Limited announced on Thursday it has achieved a total net production of 144.1 million barrels of oil equivalent for the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 9.9 percent year-on-year.

Production from China increased 13.0 percent year-on-year to 100.1 million barrels of oil equivalent, mainly attributable to production growth from the commencement of new projects including the Caofeidian 6-4 oilfield, the Luda 21-2 oilfield and production growth from onshore unconventional gas fields.

Overseas production increased by 3.2 percent year-over-year to 43.9 million barrels of oil equivalent, it said.

During the period, the company's capital expenditure increased by 13.8 percent year-on-year to approximately 20.94 billion yuan, mainly due to the increase in workload.
