Liwan subsea trees in place offshore China

Offshore staff

CALGARY, Canada – Fabrication of the Liwan gas facilities in the South China Sea is progressing per the plan, according to Husky Energy (Toronto:HSE), with first production scheduled for late 2013/early 2014.

The jacket for the shallow-water platform is more than 75% complete and topsides work is also progressing.

The first three subsea production trees have been installed on wells at the Liwan 3-1 field. Two vessels have been mobilized to start offshore pipe laying from the central platform location to the onshore gas plant.

Negotiations continue for sale of gas from the Liuhua 34-2 field and front-end engineering and design (FEED) has started for development of the Liuhua 29-1 field.

At Husky’s Madura Strait block offshore Indonesia, tenders are out for drilling rigs for a planned exploration program later this year.

Husky expects bids for a leased FPSO to be issued during the second half of this year, with first production slated for 2014.
