An expansion project is associated with the Oseberg, namely Oseberg Gas Capacity Upgrade & Power from Shore Project (OGP). This project is currently in the feed stage, expected to start in 2022.
Field participation details
The field is owned by ConocoPhillips, TotalEnergies, Petoro and Equinor.
Production from Oseberg
The Oseberg conventional oil field recovered 86.32% 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 2036. The field currently accounts for approximately 4% of the country’s daily output.
Remaining recoverable reserves
The field is expected to recover 462.37 Mmboe, comprised of 66.99 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 2,138.74 bcf of natural gas reserves and 38.92 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Oseberg conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.10% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
