An expansion project is associated with the Fram, namely the Fram South. This project is currently in the feasibility stage.

Field participation details

The field is owned by Eni, Equinor, HitecVision, Idemitsu Kosan, Inpex and Neptune Energy Group.

Production from Fram

The Fram conventional oil field recovered 63.18% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2009. The peak production was approximately 116.43 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate, 82.00 Mmcfd of natural gas and 2.34 thousand bpd of natural gas liquids. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2060. The field currently accounts for approximately 1% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 385.44 Mmboe, comprised of 129.96 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 1,454.99 bcf of natural gas reserves and 12.99 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Fram conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.04% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
