List Of Oil Fields
This list of oil fields includes some major oil fields of the past and present. The list is incomplete; there are more than 65,000 oil and gas fields of all sizes in the world.[1] However, 94% of known oil is concentrated in fewer than 1500 giant and major fields.[2] Most of the world's largest oilfields are located in the Middle East, but there are also supergiant (>10 billion bbls) oilfields in Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, and Russia. Amounts listed below, in billions of barrels, are the estimated ultimate recoverable petroleum resources (proved reserves plus cumulative production), given historical production and current extraction technology. Oil shale reserves
Oil shale reserves
(perhaps 3 trillion barrels (4.8×1011 m3)) and coal reserves, both of which can be converted to liquid petroleum, are not included in this chart

Dhahran
on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia. Measuring 50 by 15 kilometres (31.1 by 9.3 mi), the field has a producing capability of more than 1.2 million barrels per day (190×10^3 m3/d).[1] The oil field was discovered in 1951. It is considered the largest offshore oil field in the world.[2] When it was first put in production in 1957, it flowed 50,000 barrels per day (7,900 m3/d) of crude oil from 18 wells. At the beginning of 1962 it possessed the facilities to handle 350,000 barrels per day (56,000 m3/d) from 25 wells. This sevenfold increase evolved in just four years and nine months

Tengiz Field
Tengiz field (Tengiz is Turkic for "sea") is an oil field located in northwestern Kazakhstan's low-lying wetlands along the northeast shores of the Caspian Sea. It covers a 2,500 km2 (970 sq mi) project license area which also includes a smaller Korolev field as well as several exploratory prospects. Sizewise, Tengiz reservoir is 19 km (12 mi) wide and 21 km (13 mi) long[1] Discovered in 1979, Tengiz oil field is one of the largest discoveries in recent history.[2] The city of Atyrau, 350 kilometres (220 mi) north of Tengiz, is the main transport hub of Tengiz oil. Many nations are involved in a large geopolitical competition to secure access to this source of oil. Tengiz is operated by Tengizchevroil, a 40-year partnership planning to produce billions of barrels of oil from the field. The Tengizchevroil (TCO) consortium has developed the Tengiz field since its founding in April 1993

At the time, Braspetro had finished drilling of 20 wells and pressed 14 drilling rigs into service. In the course of the war, Iran occupied and sabotaged the area. After the war, Southern Oil Company of Iraq restarted the production

Romashkino Field
The Romashkino field is an oil field in Tatarstan, Russia. Discovered in 1948, it is the largest oil field of Volga-Ural Basin. The field is operated by Tatneft. The field covers approximately 4,200 square kilometres (1,600 sq mi). The oil deposit is lays in depth of about 1,800 metres (5,900 ft) in Kinovskiy and Pashiyskiy formations. Since its commissioning, the Romashkino field had produced over 15 billion barrels (2.4×10^9 m3) of oil. Statistic analysis predicted depletion at 16.5 to 17.2 billion barrels (2.62×10^9 to 2.73×10^9 m3). However, advanced technologies allow for extraction of more oil. Russia
