Ahvaz field is one of the richest oil fields in the world with an estimated proven reserves are around 65.5 billion barrels (~8.94×109 t),and production is centered on 750,000 barrels per day (119,000 m3/d)Proved oil reserves in Iran, according to its government, rank fifth largest in the world at approximately 150 billion barrels (24×109 m3) as of 2014, although it ranks third if Canadian reserves of unconventional oil are excluded.[1] This is roughly 10% of the world's total proven petroleum reserves. At 2006 rates of production, Iran's oil reserves would last 98 years if no new oil was found.
