  North Sea production wilts | EnergyBulletin.net | Peak Oil News Clearinghouse
The decline is concentrated in the British sector of the North Sea, where industry analysts Wood Mackenzie said average production for the first half of 2004 was 1.9 million barrels per day, down around 12 percent from the level of 2.166 million a year ago.
Crude production from the British sector of the North Sea fell to an average of 1.76 million barrels per day in July, a decline of 9.9 percent compared with the same time last year, and a fall of 0.8 percent on the month, according to figures this week from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The Norwegian North Sea is less mature than the British sector, and the nation's budget forecasts a rise in production next year to 3.3 million barrels per day from the annual daily average of 3.2 million barrels per day anticipated for 2004.

  North Sea oil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
North Sea oil refers to oil and natural gas (hydrocarbons) produced from oil reservoirs beneath the North Sea.
North Sea oil was discovered in the early 1960s, with the first North Sea oil coming on line in 1971 and being piped ashore at Teesside, England, from 1975, but the fields were not intensively exploited until rising oil prices in the 1980s made exploitation economically feasible.
In the Central North Sea a large number of salt domes could early be seen to penetrate from the Zechstein up into the Tertiary cover rocks, but without adequate seismic they weren't considered good targets for development.

In the case of a concave or recessing coast such as that of the Federal Republic on the North Sea, the effect of the equidistance method was to pull the line of the boundary inwards, in the direction of the concavity.
It had also contended that in a sea shaped as is the North Sea, each of the States concerned was entitled to a continental shelf area extending up to the central point of that sea, or at least extending to its median line.

 North and Baltic seas | Greenpeace International
In the North Sea, stocks of cod, haddock, whiting, plaice and sole are all being fished close to or beyond safe biological limits.
The huge threat of fisheries to local cod populations in both the Baltic and North Seas typifies how the governments of the region have repeatedly put short-term interests before the long-term sustainability of the fishing industry and the marine habitats on which they depend.
In May and June similar diving expeditions were conducted in the North Sea, and in the Finnish archipelago in the Baltic.

Although this sea is often called a shelf sea, almost half the area has a depth well in excess of 100 m and is essentially oceanic in character.
Because the salinity of the North Atlantic water and the English Channel water masses are close to one another, the choice of this flow has relatively little effect on the total exchange of North Sea water with respect to the "ocean" (i.e., the combination of the English Channel and North Sea).
The calculated nonconservative fluxes for the Southern North Sea as a whole are not particularly sensitive to the water exchange calculations.

 MUMM | The North Sea in brief
The North Sea may be a small, shallow pool compared with the oceans, but nevertheless it is teeming with life.
The North Sea is also a sensitive ecosystem that is under a great deal of pressure from intense human activities such as fishing, sand and gravel extraction, shipping, oil and gas extraction, tourism and industry.
According to the report, the consequences of fishing, the inflow of harmful substances and the excessive quantities of nutrients in the sea (eutrophication) cause the main problems in the North Sea.

 North Sea oil is declining
Since the 1970s North Sea oil has not only been a major source of wealth for both the British and Norwegian economies but also a way for Europe to cut its dependence on Middle East oil.
Now many of the major fields in the North Sea are in decline and the North Sea is about to lose its prominent role as one of the world's leading oil domains.
According to the report North Sea production is likely to peak in 2004 and then gradually decline with the maturing of some of its larger and older fields.
