HOUSTON, Apr. 11 -- PT Energi Mega Persada Tbk reported that flow tests by its 50% owned subsidiary, Kangean Energy Indonesia Ltd. (KEI), have confirmed the Terang development well production rates.
KEI started developing the offshore Terang gas field, about 90 km north of Bali Island, in January 2010. The project included the construction of a floating production unit (FPU) tanker. Development well drilling started in November 2010.
KEI expects the five wells in the field to commence production in March 2012 at a rate of 300 MMcfd.
The produced gas will flow to the FPU and then it will be transported through the existing East Java Gas Pipeline to consumers in East Java, including Perusahaan Listrik Negara, Petrokimia Gresik, Pertagas, and Indogas.
After Terang gas production starts, KEI plans to develop the nearby Sirasun and Batur gas fields as well as evaluate West Kangean gas field and the South Saubi prospects.
Energi Mega's partners in KEI are Mitsubishi Corp. 25% and Japan Pertroleum Exploration Co. Ltd. 25%.
