Beijing, August 9 - Neftegaz.RU. CNOOC has begun production from 2 infill wells in the Weizhou 12-8 fields in the Beibu Gulf offshore China.

 

Horizon Oil, a partner of CNOOC on the Beibu Gulf project, said that the combined initial production test rates of almost 3,500 bopd exceeded expectations.

 

Michael Sheridan, Horizon Oil’s CEO, said: «[…] offshore drilling and well completion program was incident free, carried out in 28 days, compared with the budgeted 37 days, with materially greater reservoir penetration than planned, aided by a high degree of directional drilling accuracy.»

 

Horizon said that the batch-drilling of the infill wells began on July 6 using the Hai Yang Shi You 941 jack-up rig. As for the Beibu Gulf project, it consists of 3 fields, Weizhou 6-12, Weizhou 6-12 S, and Weizhou 12-8 situated on Block 22/12 offshore China.

 

CNOOC is the operator of the field with a 51 % interest. Its partners are Horizon Oil with 26.95 %, Roc Oil with 19.60 %, and Majuko Corp. with 2.45 % interest.
