Production from Gullfaks
The Gullfaks conventional oil field recovered 98.38% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 1994. The peak production was approximately 529.43 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate, 195 Mmcfd of natural gas and 7.72 thousand bpd of natural gas liquids. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2026. The field currently accounts for approximately 1% of the country’s daily output.
Remaining recoverable reserves
The field is expected to recover 41.69 Mmboe, comprised of 41.69 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate. Gullfaks conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.01% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
