Oil production from Wassana to reach 10,000 b/d by yearend

Oil production has started from Wassana field in the G10/48 concession in the Gulf of Thailand, and operator KrisEnergy Ltd. expects peak production to reached 10,000 b/d by yearend as additional development wells are drilled and completed by the Key Gibraltar jack up rig (OGJ Online, June 18, 2015). KrisEnergy became the operator of the G10/48 block in May 2014.

“Work is now under way to bring another five wells on stream and to optimize production in this initial wave of drilling,” said Chris Gibson-Robinson, director exploration and production. The field is the first of a series of KrisEnergy-operated developments in Thailand, Cambodia, and Indonesia, Gibson-Robinson said.

As many as 15 development wells are planned for Wassana: 14 producer wells and 1 water disposal well. The Wassana development comprises the Ingenium mobile offshore production unit, a mooring buoy, and the Rubicon Vantage floating storage offloading vessel.

The G10/48 contract area covers 4,696 sq km over the Southern Pattani basin in 60 m of water. The contract area contains three other discoveries—Niramai and Mayura from 2009, and Rayrai in 2015. KrisEnergy holds 89% working interest in G10/48 and Palang Sophon Offshore holds 11% working interest.
