PTT Exploration & Production PCL (PTTEP) and its Bongkot joint venture partners reported the start of production from Greater Bongkot South (GBS) natural gas and condensate field in the Gulf of Thailand. GBS field lies on Blocks B16 and B17 about 200 km east of the southern Thai city of Songkhla.
This stand-alone development consists of a central processing platform, a living quarter platform, and 13 wellhead platforms. The processing platform has capacity to process 350 MMcfd of gas and 15,000 b/d of condensate. Gas is exported via a newbuild spur line to the PTTEP grid; condensate, meanwhile, is exported to the existing floating, storage, and offloading vessel at Greater Bongkot North field, which lies 80 km north.
Bangkot field is operated by PTTEP, which holds 44.45% interest. Total SA holds 33.33% and BG Group, 22.22%.
