Production from Macedon

The Macedon conventional gas field recovered 61.56% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2016. The peak production was approximately 0.01 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 205.00 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2051. The field currently accounts for approximately 1% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 61.30 Mmboe, comprised of 0.03 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate and 367.58 bcf of natural gas reserves. Macedon conventional gas field reserves accounts 0.02% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional gas fields globally.
