SOCO has begun the production of crude oil and wet gas from the Te Giac Trang (TGT) field in Vietnam.

The field has a floating, production, storage and offloading vessel, two wellhead platforms (H1 and H4) and a subsea pipeline system to transport hydrocarbons and gas exports, a gas lift and water for injection.

Crude oil produced at the TGT field will be transported through a subsea pipeline system to FPSO Armada TGT 1, while the gas will go through a pipeline to the nearby Bach Ho facilities.

The company expects the TGT field to produce 55,000bpd and 30 million cubic feet of gas per day.

Hoang Long Joint Operating operates the block in TGT on behalf of SOCO, PetroVietnam and PTT Exploration and Production.
