The largest oilfield on the planet - Ghawar

Saudi Arabia's Ghawar field is the largest oil field in the world. With recoverable reserves of between 67 - 92 Billion barrels along with substantial gas reserves. We take a quick look at the field structure and production history and put the vast scale of this field into some context. We also describe how production varies across Ghawar and explain some of the geology behind these variations.

All of the information in this video came from TROVE Middle East which contains details on all oil and gas fields and discoveries in the region. With information on over 700 assets, this is the most comprehensive technical subsurface database for the region. See our coverage map here:
