Production from PNG LNG project
The PNG LNG project conventional gas field recovered 29.81% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 2017. The peak production was approximately 29.69 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate and 1,163 Mmcfd of liquid natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2052. The field currently accounts for approximately 94% of the country’s daily output.
Remaining recoverable reserves
The field is expected to recover 1,360.02 Mmboe, comprised of 145.69 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 43.13 bcf of natural gas reserves and 7,242.8 bcf of liquid natural gas reserves. PNG LNG project conventional gas field reserves accounts 0.46% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional gas fields globally.
