Production from Fourier

The Fourier conventional gas field recovered 94.74% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2004. The peak production was approximately 15.28 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 112.00 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2026.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 5.31 Mmboe, comprised of 4.58 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate and 4.33 bcf of natural gas reserves.
