SINGAPOREKrisEnergy has started oil production from its first operated project in the Gulf of Thailand.

The Wassana field is in the G10/48 concession: KrisEnergy became operator of the block in May 2014.

Work is under way to bring another five wells onstream and to optimize production.

Output from Wassana should peak at around 10,000 b/d as the jackup Key Gibraltar completes further wells. The company plans up to 14 producers and one water disposal well.

Development facilities comprise a mobile offshore production unit, the MOPU Ingenium, a mooring buoy, and the Rubicon Vantage FSO.

The G10/48 contract area covers 4,696 sq km (1,813 sq mi) over the Southern Pattani basin in water depths of up to 60 m (197 ft). It also contains the Mayura, Niramai, and Rayrai discoveries.

KrisEnergy’s partner is Palang Sophon Offshore.
