Azadegan oil field
|Azadegan oil field|
|Current production of oil||40,000 barrels per day (~2.0×106 t/a)|
|Estimated oil in place||33,200 million barrels (~4.53×109 t)|
|Recoverable oil||5,200 million barrels (~7.1×108 t)|
|Producing formations||Sarvak, Kazhdomi, Godvan, and Fahilan layers|
The first exploration well was drilled in the field in 1976, but its discovery was finalized after drilling the second well in 1999. The field has an approximate area of 900 square kilometres (350 sq mi).
Iranian authorities claim that the Azadegan field has oil-in-place reserves of about 33.2 billion barrels (5.28×109 m3) and recoverable resources estimated at about 5.2 billion barrels (830×106 m3). It is one of the NIOC Recent Discoveries and the biggest oil field found in Iran in the last 30 years.
Sarvak, Kazhdomi, Godvan, and Fahilan are productive layers of the field. The current production is 40,000 barrels per day (6,400 m3/d). Crude oil produced by the Fahilan layer is light while the other layers yield heavy crude.
