Kiliwani North subsea gas pipeline enters commissioning phase offshore Tanzania

Offshore staff

LONDONAminex says commissioning has started on the subsea pipeline and gas plant for its Kiliwani North development close to the Tanzanian coast.

Commissioning of the power generation system and other auxiliary facilities has been completed.

Last week gas from the Kiliwani North-1 well was processed and entered the pipeline system connecting the Songo Songo plant with the Tanzanian national pipeline.

During commissioning, gas rates will increase to 30 MMcf/d while pressuring up the plant and pipeline.

The company and state-owned TPDC plan a well test to determine the optimal flow rate, which will also serve as the commercial production rate.

Based on initial pressure response from Kiliwani North 1, the probable test rate is around 30 MMcf/d.
