The developments are in the Nam Con Son basin in about 140 m of water.

GE notes that Hai Thach and Moc Tinh are the largest offshore gas and condensate development projects in Vietnam.

GE's Vetco Gray equipment is rated for 350° F. and 15,000 psi.

In a 2009 document for securing a tender-assisted semisubmersible drilling rig for developing the gas, Bien Dong notes that Hai Thach and Moc Tinh (Jupiter) contain estimated reserves of 55 billion cu m and 150 million bbl of condensate.
