Inpex begins production from Nasr field offshore Abu Dhabi

Inpex Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiary, Japan Oil Development Co. Ltd. (JODCO), has begun oil production from the Nasr oil field offshore Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Inpex has jointly developed the Nasr field with Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC), BP, and Total. In the first development phase, Inpex has begun oil production from the Nasr field by utilizing existing facilities of the Abu Al Bukoosh (ABK) and Umm Shaif oil fields, located adjacent to the Nasr field. Full field development of the Nasr field is in progress, and, after completion, the field is expected to produce oil at a peak rate of 65,000 barrels per day.

The oil produced from the Nasr field in the first development phase is transported via an existing subsea pipeline to Das Island, and eventually supplied to customers in Japan and other Asian countries as Das Crude.
