Total has started production from the Badamyar project, 220km offshore from south Yangon, Myanmar.
The project involves installation of a new wellhead platform connected to the Yadana production facilities, enabling an extension of the Yadana gasfield’s eight billion cubic metres annual output beyond 2020.
Total exploration and production president Arnaud Breuillac said: “Completed on schedule and with costs 20% below budget, this second start-up by Total in 2017 demonstrates our capacity to effectively implement cost reduction programmes.
“This project underscores Total’s commitment to develop gas projects to provide Myanmar and Thailand with affordable, reliable and clean energy to support the countries’ economic growth over the coming years.”
As part of the Badamyar project, four horizontal wells will be drilled to develop Badamyar gasfield as a satellite of Yadana. It also includes a new compression platform.
Total holds a 31.2% interest in the project, which was established in mid-2014. Other partners are Chevron-Unocal (28.3%), PTTEP (25.5%) and the national company MOGE (15%).
