Total starts work on South Mahakam project

Total SA has started work on its South Mahakam gas-condensate project aimed at offsetting production declines on its Mahakam production-sharing contract block offshore Indonesia.

In the first phase, Total and 50-50 partner Inpex will install three platforms and drill 19 wells in 45-60 m of water in the phased development of Stupa, West Stupa, and East Mandu gas-condensate fields and of Jempang and Metulang gas fields.

The fields are 35 km southeast of Balikpapan.

Total, which operates the PSC through subsidiary Total E&P Indonesie, expects production to ramp up to reach an average 69,000 boe/d, including 18,000 b/d of condensate, by the end of 2013.

Gas and liquids will flow through a new pipeline from the Stupa platform to the Senipah onshore terminal operated by Total. Some of the gas will move to the Bontang LNG plant, and some will be sold domestically.
