FEB 25 (Reuters) - Canada’s Enerplus Corp said it produced 77,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) in December, about 4 percent lower than its forecast of 80,000-82,000 boed.
The company said exit volume shortfalls were mainly related to its Bakken production in North Dakota where a harsh winter hurt its ability to truck production to the sales terminals.
Enerplus produced an average of 83,139 boed in 2010. It had forecast fiscal 2010 production to average 83,000-84,000 boed.
Enerplus has been developing its unconventional oil and gas holdings, including the massive Marcellus shales of Pennsylvania and the Bakken oil region in Saskatchewan, Montana and North Dakota. (Reporting by Bhaswati Mukhopadhyay in Bangalore; Editing by Don Sebastian)
