Eni starts oil production from Kitan field offshore Australia

By OGJ editors

Eni Australia has started production from Kitan oil field in the Joint Petroleum Development Area permit JPDA 06-105 between Timor Leste and Australia. Kitan lies 240 km south of Timor Leste’s capital of Dili and 550 km north of Darwin, Australia.

Kitan, which is expected to reach peak production of 40,000 bo/d, is being produced through three deepwater subsea completion wells connected to the Glas Dowr floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (OGJ Online, May 24, 2010).

The field was discovered in 2008 and holds an estimated 30-40 million bbl of oil.

Eni is Kitan’s operator with a 40% interest; its partners are Inpex Timor Sea (35%) and Talisman Resources (25%).
