Type: Oil reserve
Production: 19,000 bopd (November 2017)
Gross 2P: 57.4 mmbbl
Location: 92km NW of Warri
Reservoir Depth: 7,600–8,900ft
The reservoirs contain light crudes with API gravities ranging from 47.5° in the shallow reservoirs to 37.8° in the deep and saturated reservoirs. There has been very little pressure depletion over the 30 plus years of production, which indicates a strong aquifer support and consequently leading to very high total ultimate oil recoveries.
Oil can be exported by two routes: (i) via the Shell-operated Trans Escravos Pipeline network running from the Opuama field south along the coastline to the Forcados Oil Terminal, (ii) via shipping to an offshore FPSO.
