Liwan jacket and wellhead platform

Canada-based oil and gas company Husky Energy has completed the installation of the jacket and wellhead platform on the Madura Strait BD gas-condensate field, in around 55m of water, offshore Indonesia.

The company expects to begin development drilling soon, and initial production from the project is targeted during 2017.

The gas field is located in the Madura Strait production sharing contract (PSC), offshore East Java.

Covering an area of approximately 2,516km², the PSC currently comprises six discoveries.

According to the company, the BD field is expected to produce net peak production of around 40 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) of gas, in addition to 2,400 barrels of oil equivalent (boe/d) of liquids.

Husky Energy CEO Asim Ghosh said: "Our Indonesia gas developments represent some of the strongest growth opportunities in our deep portfolio and are particularly strategic in the current commodity price environment."

"Our Indonesia gas developments represent some of the strongest growth opportunities in our deep portfolio."

As part of the project, about 30% of work related to the construction of a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel is complete.

Further, a tendering process is underway for a floating production vessel and associated engineering, procurement, construction and installation contracts for the combined MDA-MBH fields that are also located in the Madura Strait.

The fields are expected to produce approximately 50mmcf/d (net) at peak.

The MDK field, which is a third discovery, would be tied into the MDA-MBH field infrastructure and is expected to produce about 10mmcf/d (net) at peak.

In all of the Indonesia projects, which will be developed in partnership with CNOOC as the operator and an affiliate of Samudra Energy, Husky Energy holds a 40% interest.

In addition to the Indonesia offshore developments, the company has the Liwan Gas project in the South China Sea, that continues to deliver steady production, averaging around 295mmcf/d (gross), and associated liquids of about 14,800 boe/d (153mmcf/d and 8,300 boe/d net to Husky).
