oil fields

List of oil fields

This list of oil fields includes some of major oil fields of the past and present. The list is incomplete; there are more than 40,000 oil and gas fields of all sizes in the world.

However, 94% of known oil is concentrated in fewer than 1500 giant and major fields

N.B. Some of the items listed are basins that are composed of many fields (e.g. Campos Basin). The largest discovered conventional oil field is the Ghawar Field (75-83 billion); some unconventional oil fields, such as Venezuela's Orinoco tar sands and Canada's Athabasca tar sands, contain even greater reserves.

Amounts given are estimated ultimate recoverable resources (proved reserves plus cumulative production) in barrels. Non-conventional sources, such as Oil shale reserves are not included in this chart.
