Production from Baobab

The Baobab conventional oil field recovered 87.06% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2006. The peak production was approximately 60.00 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 33.00 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2030. The field currently accounts for approximately 24% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 41.39 Mmboe, comprised of 39.73 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate and 9.93 bcf of natural gas reserves.
