Full field development of the Nasr Oil Field is currently in progress, and after completion, the field is expected to produce oil at a peak rate of 65,000 barrels per day.
The oil produced from the Nasr Oil Field in the first development phase is transported via an existing subsea pipeline to Das Island, and eventually supplied to customers in Japan and other Asian countries as Das Crude.
