Offshore staff

STOCKHOLM, SwedenLundin Petroleum has produced first oil from the Bertam field offshore eastern Peninsular Malaysia.

Currently, four wells are in service drilled from a wellhead platform linked to a spread-moored FPSO in 75 m (246 ft) of water. The converted floater formerly operated offshore Tunisia.

The remaining wells will be drilled sequentially and put onstream later this year. By end-2015, the facilities should be operating at the plateau rate of 15,000 b/d.

Bertam is in block PM307. Lundin has a 75% operating interest, in partnership with Petronas Carigali. Petronas approved the $400-million development in September 2013.

During 4Q 2015, Lundin expects to start operations at the Edvard Grieg field in the central Norwegian North Sea, lifting its overall production to more than 75,000 boe/d.
