BOGOTA, May 23 (Reuters) - Colombia produced an average of
914,000 barrels of crude oil per day (bpd) in April, the Mines
and Energy Ministry said on Monday.
    The output was down 11.1 percent from the year before,
according to Reuters calculations. The ministry did not give a
reason for the decline.
    Natural gas production rose 7.28 percent year-on-year to
1.031 billion cubic feet per day.
    State-run Ecopetrol produces more than one-half of
Colombia's oil, while Toronto-listed Pacific Exploration and
Production Corp is the biggest private player.
    The following is a breakdown of Colombia's average daily oil
output. Some figures may have been modified slightly by the
government since they were first released:
