JAKARTA (rambuenergy.com) – Husky, a Calgary, Candada-based oil and gas company, said the construction of a wellhead platform and pipeline infrastructure at the liquids-rich BD field within Madura Strait PSC in offshore East Java is now considered 45 percent completed.
It said an FPSO is also being built to process the gas and liquids production from the field. A rig procurement process has been completed. Therefore, the company believes that the field is on track for first production in 2017.
Earlier, Husky and its partner CNOOC Madura Ltd, awarded a contract to PT Armada Gema Nusantara (PTAGN), a subsidiary of Malaysia’s Bumi Armada Offshore Holdings Ltd to supply an FSPO vessel for the Madura BD field in early December 2014.
Approval has also been secured from the Indonesian authority to hold tender to develop the MDA and MBH natural gas fields. It also secured approval from the Indonesian regulators for a plan of development (POD) for the MDK natural gas fields.
The company said a tendering process is under way for a floating production vessel and related engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract to develop the combined MDA-MBH fields in the Madura Strait.
These fields are expected to be progressively brought on production in the 2017-2019 timeframe. A plan of development has been approved for the MDK field, which is scheduled to be tied into the MDA-MBH fields in the same timeframe.
Combined net sales volumes from the BD and MDA-MBH fields are expected to be about 90 mmcf/day of gas and 2,400 boe/day of associated liquids.
Husky owns working interest of 40 percent in the Madura Strait PSC, CNOOC 40 percent and PT Samudra Energy owns the remaining 20 percent. They develop the block through a joint entity Husky-CNOOC Madura Ltd (HCML). (*)
