CNOOC restarts Bozhong 28-2 South production

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 27
-- CNOOC Ltd. restarted production from the Bozhong 28-2 South (BZ 28-2S) oil fields in Bohai Bay off China.

CNOOC suspended operations in April because rough weather caused a malfunction with the single-point mooring of the Haiyanshiyou 102 floating, production, storage, and offloading vessel. The FPSO also receives production from BZ 28-2 SN, BZ 34-1N, and BZ 29-4 oil fields.

CNOOC said the production capacity has recovered to the level before the incident, reaching about 39,000 bo/d.

Production started from BZ 28-2S in 2009 (OGJ Online, Mar. 19, 2009). The field, discovered in 2006, lies in 21 m of water. CNOOC operates the fields with a 100% interest.
