Thanks kinematik. The biggest number I can see in here after a quick look through is the "high" value or P10 which is just under 4 billion bbls in place and with just under 2 billion bbls recoverable (reserves) using a 50% recovery factor which is pretty high. This is the most optimistic case and least likely. Hopefully the new reserves report post drilling Atrush 2 will push the reserves towards this high case.

So the 30 billion speculated on this BB has no facts behind it? Or is there another report which comes up with this pennyoilking. Or is this out of thin air?

Lets keep to facts and science.
