CALGARY, Canada – Construction of the wellhead platforms and pipeline system for the BD gas field in the Madura Strait offshore Indonesia is more than 50% complete, according to Husky Energy.

An FPSO is also being built to process gas and liquids produced from the field. Husky expects start-up in 2017.

A tendering process is under way for a floating production vessel and the associated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract to develop the combined MDA-MBH fields in the Madura Strait.

These will be brought progressively onstream during 2017-2019, Husky says, while the MDK field should be tied into the MDA-MBH infrastructure in the same timeframe.

Offshore Newfoundland, oil production has started from the second of two development wells at the company’s South White Rose extension drill center. Production is tied back to the SeaRose FPSO.

Subject to rig availability, drilling of the Hibernia formation well beneath the North Amethyst field is now planned for 2016-2017, the company adds.
