Production from Heidrun

The Heidrun conventional oil field recovered 84.99% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 1997. The peak production was approximately 231.73 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 32.00 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2040. The field currently accounts for approximately 2% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 220.71 Mmboe, comprised of 76.55 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 820.56 bcf of natural gas reserves and 7.40 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Heidrun conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.05% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
