Brazil leads global offshore crude and condensate production from new-build projects in 2025, says GlobalData
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
The company’s report: ‘Production and Capital Expenditure Outlook for Key Planned and Announced Upstream Projects in Global Offshore Industry, 2019 – UK and Norway Lead in Upcoming Projects Count’ reveals that 818 thousand bpd of crude and condensate production is expected from planned projects with identified development plans in Brazil in 2025 while 637 thousand bpd is expected from early-stage announced projects that are undergoing conceptual studies and are expected to get approval for development.
Soorya Tejomoortula, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “In Brazil, 28 crude oil projects are expected to start operations by 2025. Of these, Carcara, Buzios V (Franco) and Libra Central are some of the key projects that are expected to collectively contribute around 34% of the country’s crude and condensate production in 2025.”
GlobalData identifies Norway as the second highest country globally with 1106 thousand bpd of crude production or roughly 14% of the total global offshore crude and condensate production in 2025. Nigeria follows with crude production of 968 mbd from planned and announced offshore projects in 2025.
Among the companies, Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Equinor ASA and Royal Dutch Shell Plc lead globally with highest offshore crude and condensate production of 770.1 thousand bpd, 622 thousand bpd and 447.5 thousand bpd, respectively, from planned and announced projects in 2025.
