Petronas, ExxonMobil bring Angsi field in South China Sea on line

By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, Dec. 26 -- Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd., a branch of Malaysian national oil company Petronas, began first production from Angsi field in the South China Sea off Malaysia, 6 months ahead of schedule and 30% below original approved cost.

Angsi's initial flow was 15,000 b/d of oil and 60 MMscfd of gas. At peak, Angsi should produce 65,000 b/d of oil and 450 MMscfd of gas (10% of Malaysia's current oil production and 17% of its current gas production, respectively).

ExxonMobil Exploration & Production Malaysia Inc. is Petronas Carigali's 50% partner in the development (OGJ Online, Mar. 5, 2001).

An integrated oil and gas central processing platform is connected to a 52-well drilling platform via a 100-m bridge, as well as a 32-well satellite drilling platform. There are connections to existing gas production facilities at Guntong-D and Seligi-A, a connection to the existing oil production facilities at Tapis, and a new 166-km pipeline from the Angsi complex to the onshore receiving facility.

"The new pipeline establishes the Angsi complex as a new hub for transporting gas to shore, enhancing the security of supply via an alternative transportation route," said Petronas.
