Development of Lengo gas field in the Bulu production-sharing contract area in the East Java basin offshore Indonesia has moved into the front-end engineering and design stage.
Synergy Engineering was awarded the engineering services contract for the work, while Survey contractor Java Offshore has begun geophysical and geotechnical surveys at the platform site, the proposed platform-to-shore pipeline route, and the onshore receiving terminal site. Lengo field lies in 50-60 m of water.
The development will comprise four development wells, an unmanned wellhead platform, and a 65-km export pipeline to shore.
At plateau, Lengo is expected to produce 70 MMcfd of gas. Production is likely to begin 2 years after the AWE Ltd. group make a final investment decision.
Lengo is operated by KrisEnergy with 42.5%. Sydney-based AWE also has 42.5%, while Indonesian companies Satria Energindo and Satria Wijayakusuma have 10% and 5%, respectively.
KrisEnergy is keen to use Lengo as an aggregation hub in the region to possibly include the adjacent East Muriaj and Sakti PSCs. AWE also has interest in East Muriah as well as in nearby Titan, Teerembu, and North Madura PSCs.
