British oil company Premier Oil extracted a daily 71,400 barrels of oil equivalents (boe) last year. This marks a new record and almost 25 percent more than in 2015 for the company, which is one of the UK's independent oil and gas companies. The significant rise in production mainly took place in the North Sea, where 33,000 daily barrels were produced in 2016, which is twice as much as in the previous year.
