Drilling/Production news briefs, Oct. 26


UK-based Emerald Energy PLC said Wednesday that the Gigante No. 1A well in the Upper Magdalena Valley in Colombia is back in production following remedial work to clean up the site after a blowout and fire earlier this year (OGJ Online, July 12, 2000). Oil production is flowing at 2,400 b/d. A pressure test is now being conducted, before installation of the electric submersible pump that is expected to result in a flow rate of more than 4,000 b/d.

PTT Exploration & Production Public Co. Ltd. (PTTEP), an affiliate of Petroleum Authority of Thailand, has awarded Aberdeen-based BJ Tubular Services, a unit of BJ Services Co., a contract to provide casing and tubing running services in Thailand. BJ said Wednesday that the contract, its first from PTTEP, fits in with its expansion program in the Asia-Pacific region. BJ received the 2-year contract from PTTEP this summer and began operations on PTTEP's Bongkot field in the Gulf of Thailand in August 2000.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) has awarded Wood Group ESP a contract to supply 48 electric submersible pump (ESP) units over the next 12 months. The ESPs will be installed offshore in the Campos Basin, the location of Petrobras' ultradeepwater production facilities. The latest equipment will complement the existing 120-unit installed base and include all downhole components of the ESP system. "These are the most important contracts won by Wood Group ESP since we became active in Brazil," said Wood Group ESP's Brazil Country Manager Daniel Fleitas."
