Landline issue restricts Liwan gas output offshore China

Offshore staff

CALGARY, Canada – Natural gas sales from the Liwan gas project offshore China have been were impacted by a temporary land-based pipeline outage within the customer’s pipeline network.

According to Liwan partner Husky Energy, a temporary land-based pipeline has been installed while the permanent line undergoes repairs.

Current Liwan production is averaging around 150 MMcf/d of gas and 8,000 boe/d of associated liquids.

Elsewhere in the Far East, construction of a leased FPSO for Husky’s liquids-rich BD field in the Madura Strait offshore Indonesia is around 65% complete. Development drilling has also started and first production should follow next year.

Tendering has finished for another floating production vessel to develop the MDA-MBH and MDK gas fields and is awaiting approval from Indonesia’s government. Associated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contracts are progressing.

Once both projects are fully ramped up in the 2018-19 timeframe, Husky adds, combined net sales volumes should reach around 100 MMcf/d of gas and 2,400 boe/d of associated liquids.

Offshore Newfoundland, the semisubmersible Henry Goodrich is in transit to start a two-year drilling program, initially involving further development drilling at Husky’s South White Rose extension project, followed by completion of the Hibernia formation production well at North Amethyst. First oil is slated for 4Q.

In the Flemish Pass Basin, exploration and appraisal drilling continues at the deepwater Bay du Nord discovery area.
