JAKARTA, Indonesia – Chevron Indonesia Co. Ltd. has started natural gas production from the Bangka field development in the Kutei basin offshore East Kalimantan.

The Bangka project includes a subsea well connection to the West Seno FPU. It has a design capacity of 110 MMcf/d of natural gas and 4,000 b/d of condensate. According to Chevron, at full capacity the project could supply 3% of total Indonesian natural gas demand.

The Bangka project is Indonesia’s first deepwater subsea tieback. It also features the country’s first and longest deepwater flexible pipeline installed and the first single deepwater umbilical installed.

Chevron has a 62% interest in the Bangka project. The other joint venture partners are Eni with 20% interest and Tip Top with 18% interest.

A final investment decision was reached in 2014, following government approvals. Chevron began drilling the development wells in the second half of 2014.

This is the first stage of the Chevron-operated Indonesia deepwater development (IDD) project in East Kalimantan.
