Production from BassGas

The BassGas conventional gas field recovered 63.30% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2008. The peak production was approximately 2.01 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 55 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2041.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 28.8 Mmboe, comprised of 4.29 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 128.56 bcf of natural gas reserves and 3.08 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. BassGas conventional gas field reserves accounts 0.01% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional gas fields globally.
