  • Type: liquid category (i.e. Natural Gas Liquids, Natural gas condensate, Crude oil)
  • Grade: oil quality (light, medium, heavy, sour) or API gravity
  • 2P resvs: 2P (proven + probable) oil reserves in giga barrels (Gb).
  • GOR: The ratio of produced gas to produced oil, commonly abbreviated GOR.[1]
  • Peak year: year of the production plateau/peak.
  • Peak: maximum production expected (thousand barrels/day).
