SINGAPORE – Mubadala Petroleum has delivered first oil from the Nong Yao field in the G11/48 license in the Gulf of Thailand.
Production currently flows from three wells. This also represents the first field development onstream for partner KrisEnergy.
Keith Cameron, the company’s CEO, said: “We are currently working on a further four oil developments in the Gulf of Thailand including the KrisEnergy-operated Wassana oil field in the adjacent G10/48 concession, which we expect to go into production shortly.”
Eventually up to 23 wells will be in service at Nong Yao, connected to a wellhead processing platform and a minimum facility wellhead platform with crude exported via a floating storage and offloading vessel.
The facilities can produce up to 15,000 b/d of oil and process up to 30,000 b/d of fluids.
G11/48 covers 3,374 sq km (1,303 sq mi) over the southern margin of the Pattani basin and the northwest margin of the Malay basin in water depths of up to 75 m (246 ft).
