KrisEnergy, an independent upstream oil and gas company, announces that it has approved final investment decision for the development of the Wassana oil field in the Gulf of Thailand G10/48 licence where production is anticipated to commence in the second half of 2015.
The Wassana development concept comprises a MOPU and 12-14 development wells producing to a floating storage offloading vessel. The Company has secured the use of a converted Bethlehem Matt Type jack-up rig currently employed as a MOPU offshore Malaysia. The unit is suitable for water depths up to 65 metres and has full hydrocarbon processing facility for up to 20,000 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) and a water injection capacity of 15,000 barrels per day. KrisEnergy will take delivery of the MOPU in September 2014 when it will go into drydock for inspection and minor refurbishments.
KrisEnergy holds 100% working interest in G10/48, which covers 4,696 sq km over the southern section of the Pattani Basin in water depths up to 60 metres. The licence contains three oil discoveries – Wassana, Niramai and Mayura – in various stages of development or appraisal. The Wassana oil field is expected to reach a peak production of 10,000 bopd.
