Amal Oil Field (Redevelopment), Libya, Commercial Asset Valuation and Forecast to 2017 now available at ReportsandReports

Amal Field - Block NC12 (area 90/91) is located in the eastern part of the Sirte basin and is around 50km north of the Augila oasis in Libya. The latitude and the longitude of the field are 29° 25' 0 N and 21° 10' 0 E. Amal is an onshore field that extends to more than 100,000 acres. The field includes eight different reservoirs and is at a depth ranging from 2,300 to 12,000 feet below the surface. PetroCanada (now Suncor Energy, August 2009) is the operator of the field. The field produces around one-third of Libya's total oil production.

The field is owned by Harouge Oil Operations (previously Veba Oil Operations) that is a joint venture between National Oil Corporation (NOC), Libya and Petro-Canada. Both the partners have an equal stake of 50% in the venture. Petro-Canada entered into agreement in 2007 with NOC for the redevelopment of the field that included pipeline and facility upgrades, development drilling and other expansion.

The oil produced at the field has an API ranging between 36° to 38°and has a high wax content. The sulfur content in the oil is estimated to be around 0.45%.

The field had estimated recoverable reserves of approximately 4.2 billion barrels when it was discovered in 1959. The estimated remaining reserves of the field in 2010 are estimated to be around 57.44 million barrels. The current production of oil from the field is around 9.36 million barrels. The oil production from the field is likely to decline at a natural rate of 7-8% annually.

The life of the field after redevelopment (2007) is expected to be around 10-11 years with complete abandonment by 2017. During its remaining life the field is expected to generate revenues of $4.62 billion (undiscounted, starting January 2010).
