Production from Oseberg

The Oseberg conventional oil field recovered 88.50% 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 5% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 388.86 Mmboe, comprised of 46.59 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 1,858.37 bcf of natural gas reserves and 32.54 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Oseberg conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.08% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
