Three new gas fields with combined production of 130 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) began operations in the first quarter of this year, upstream oil and gas authority BPMigas reported.
The fields are APN E&F in the North West Java offshore block, which is operated by Pertamina EP, Wortel at the Sampang block, operated by Australia-based Santos, and Tambang Subsea at Block B, operated by US-based ConocoPhillips.
“The gas fields came on-stream in the first quarter of 2012. We hope the projects can add more supply to domestic gas users,” said BPMigas spokesperson Gde Pradnyana in a press statement sent.
The APN E&F and Tambang Subsea fields, he continued, could potentially produce 50 mmscfd and 40 mmscfd of gas, while the Wortel field was expected to have total output of 40 mmscfd of gas, 500 barrels per day (bpd) of oil and 250 bpd of condensate.
In addition to the three fields, another upstream project that was completed during the same period was the installation of an oil transfer pipeline at the Tampi block at Merangin Block 2 in South Sumatra, Gde revealed. The completion of the pipeline would increase the field’s oil production from the current 1,300 bpd to 1,900 bpd.
