Field participation details

The field is owned by ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Petoro and TotalEnergies.

Production from Oseberg

The Oseberg conventional oil field recovered 89.07% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 1994. The peak production was approximately 503.05 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2039. The field currently accounts for approximately 4% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 374.64 Mmboe, comprised of 57.82 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 1,724.49 bcf of natural gas reserves and 29.40 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Oseberg conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.08% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
