SINGAPORE – KrisEnergy expects its Wassana oil field development to go onstream this month in the G10/48 license in the Gulf of Thailand.

Development involves drilling up to 15 wells linked to the MOPU Ingenium and the FSO Rubicon Vantage, with production capacity of 10,000 b/d.

Both the MOPU and the FSO are on location and hooked up to mooring buoy and related pipelines. Commissioning of four of the development wells drilled to date, and of the Wassana processing systems, is nearly finished.

In June, the Mubadala Petroleum-operated Nong Yao oil field (KrisEnergy 22.5%), also in the Gulf of Thailand, started production and to date seven wells have been completed.

The facilities, comprising a wellhead processing platform and minimum facility wellhead platform linked to an FSO, can produce up to 15,000 b/d of oil and process 30,000 b/d of fluids.

Among the company’s other interests in the Gulf of Thailand, up to 52 development wells are due to be drilled at the B8/32 and B9A oil and gas production complex.

In June, KrisEnergy submitted a production area application for the Rossukon oil field in the G6/48 license following a successful four-well drilling program in March and April.

Offshore Cambodia, the company says technical and fiscal terms have been agreed for the Apsara oil development in block A. The company aims for first oil around 24 months after a final investment decision is taken.
