The biggest discovery in Jafurah area

The Jafurah field is now estimated to contain approximately 229 trillion cf of gas and 75 billion barrels of condensate, Saudi Arabia’s Energy Ministry said, which was confirmed by “a leading independent consulting company specializing in the field of resource approval and proven reserves.” . “This achievement was achieved as a result of applying the highest international standards in the assessment and development of hydrocarbon resources.”

Many huge reserves of gas in Jafurah

The Jafurah unconventional gas field is located south-east of the Ghawar oil field in the eastern province of the state. Unconventional resources refer to resources that require advanced extraction methods. Riyadh has committed to developing the field, with Saudi Aramco awarding $10 billion in contracts for the effort in 2021. At the time, capital expenditure at Jafurah – the kingdom’s largest non-associated gas field – was expected to reach $68 billion over the first 10 years of development.

Saudi Arabia will become the largest natural gas producer

With an estimated 200 trillion cf of gas, the Jafurah Basin hosts the largest liquids-rich shale gas play in the Middle East. It covers an area of 17,000 square kilometers. Natural gas production at Jafurah is expected to increase to 2 billion standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of shale gas by 2030, from 200 million scfd in 2025. It will hold 418 million scfd of ethane and approximately 630,000 barrels per day of gas liquids. This would make Saudi Arabia, the Arab world’s largest economy, one of the world’s largest natural gas producers.
