HOUSTON, July 6 -- Lundin Petroleum and Atlantis Holding Norway AS plan to start production from Oudna oil field off Tunisia in September.
The field's initial gross production is expected to be 20,000 b/d of 41.5° gravity oil from Miocene Lower Birsa sands. The field has estimated proved and probable reserves of 11.5 million bbl of oil (OGJ Online, Feb. 20, 2006, Newsletter).
Oudna has a single subsea production well with a 7-in. downhole jet pump tied back to a floating production, storage, and offloading vessel formerly on nearby Isis field. It also has a water injection well.
