Production from Sleipner Vest

The Sleipner Vest conventional gas field recovered 90.11% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production in 1999. The peak production was approximately 40.97 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate, 300 Mmcfd of natural gas and 18.66 thousand bpd of natural gas liquids. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2031. The field currently accounts for approximately 1% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 51.8 Mmboe, comprised of 9.78 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 208.99 bcf of natural gas reserves and 7.2 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Sleipner Vest conventional gas field reserves accounts 0.02% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional gas fields globally.
