HOUSTON, Apr. 21 -- Production has fully resumed from typhoon-damaged Huizhou oil field in the Pearl River Mouth basin off China.
China’s CNOOC Ltd. said production from eight platforms has reached 45,000 b/d of oil and more than 40 MMcfd of natural gas.
Flow ceased last Sept. 14 when Typhoon Koppu damaged mooring lines and the delivery hose of the single point mooring system for the Nanhai Faxian floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (OGJ Online, Sept. 24, 2009). There were no casualties.
The field lies in 115 of water 120 miles southeast of Hong Kong. It is operated by the CACT Operators Group encompassing CNOOC, Eni SPA, and Chevron Corp.
