Adar oil field
The field was discovered by US oil company Chevron in 1981 and was inaugurated by Sudan President Omar al-Bashir in March 1997, at which point it was producing about 5,000 barrels per day (bpd). The first Sudanese crude to be exported came from Adar. The exports were minimal - one cargo every fortnight, or up to 2,500 bpd; by May 1998, production had increased to 10,000 b/d, which remained a tiny fraction of the field’s potential.
