As of December 31st, 2016, we owned mineral rights to seven blocks in Vietnam: five exploration blocks with a net surface area of 73,231 km2 and two production/development blocks with a net surface area of 152 km2.

In 2016 net production totaled 1.8 Mbbl of liquids and 1.3 bscf of natural gas, with an equivalent total net production of 2.0 Mboe (5,490 boe/d). Net proved reserves of liquids and natural gas at year-end were estimated at 4.2 Mboe.


  • In 2016, progress was made in the final detail definition phase of the Development Plan for the major exploration find of Ca Rong Do (CRD) and marketing of the gas produced. The CRD find is in marine block 07/03, where Repsol holds an ownership interest of 46.75%. As early as January 2015 the shareholders of block 07/03, together with PetroVietnam, approved the development plan for the CRD find and the declaration of commercial viability was completed in July. The final investment decision (FID) to develop and put this major find into production is expected to be taken in the first six months of 2017.
