Following the start of oil production this summer at the Nong Yao field in the Gulf of Thailand (G11/48 license), 14 wells have been drilled. Two more are currently drilling, both likely to be completed by end-November.
The field should then reach peak production of 10,000 b/d.
Facilities comprise a wellhead processing platform and a minimum facility wellhead platform with crude oil exported via an FSO.
To date, nine producers and one water disposal well have been drilled, and drilling has started on five horizontal development wells.
All will be connected to the mobile offshore production unit Ingenium and the FSO Rubicon Vantage. Production currently stands at approximately 5,500 b/d.
This year’s 52-well drilling program has been completed at the B8/32 and B9A oil and gas-producing complex in the Gulf of Thailand.
One platform was installed and brought online earlier this year. Production at the end of October was around 27,000 b/d of oil and 130 MMcf/d of gas.
Discussions continue with the Thai authorities concerning a production area application for the Rossukon oil development in the G6/48 license, also in the Gulf. This was submitted in June following a successful four-well drilling program in March and April.
Offshore East Java, front-end engineering and design has been completed for the Lengo gas development in the Bulu production-sharing contract is completed.
Geophysical and geotechnical surveys have been completed onshore at the site of the receiving terminal and offshore at the production facilities location and along the gas export pipeline route.
Gas sales negotiations are said to be progressing.
