Second pipeline in place at Liwan offshore China

Offshore staff

CALGARY, Canada – Gas sales volumes from the Liwan field offshore China averaged 220 MMcf/d during 3Q, says partner Husky Energy, with associated liquids production of 10,600 b/d.

Installation has been completed of the second 22-in. subsea pipeline, providing additional operating flexibility and redundancy over the lifespan of the project.

Elsewhere in the Far East, construction continues of facilities for the liquids-rich BD field in the Madura Strait offshore Indonesia, with the project now around 90% complete.

Pipeline construction continues, and all four development wells have been drilled and cased to target depth. Construction of the FPSO to process the gas and liquids is nearly finished, with preparations under way for transportation to and installation at the field location.

Husky anticipates first production from the BD field next year.

At the shallow water MDA-MBH fields, engineering, procurement, and construction is roughly 20% complete, and tendering is nearing a conclusion for a floating production unit.

EPCO tendering has finished at the MDK field. The fields will be developed in tandem and are due to enter production during 2018-2019.

Offshore Newfoundland, Husky’s 3Q net production averaged around 24,800 b/d, reflecting a turnaround on the SeaRose FPSO.

In mid-September first oil flowed from the Hibernia formation well at North Amethyst. At South White Rose, drilling is under way of a third infill well that should begin producing around year-end.

The partners continue to assess West White Rose, focusing on increased capital efficiency and improved resource capture.

Husky and Statoil are also planning their next steps in the Flemish Pass basin, where they have discovered the Bay du Nord, Mizzen, Harpoon, Bay de Verde, and Baccalieu oilfields.
