Ruby field gas flow starts offshore Indonesia

Mubadala Petroleum, Abu Dhabi, reported the start of production from Ruby natural gas field offshore East Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Mubadala didn’t report a production rate. SKK Migas, which manages the Sebuku production sharing contract for the Indonesian government, earlier this year said the field would flow at a peak rate of 100 MMscfd for 4 years and produce 214 bcf over 10 years.

The field, in 60 m of water in the Makassar Strait, produces from four wells completed in the Oligocene Berai formation. Facilities include a six-slot tripod wellhead platform bridge-linked to a processing and quarters platform. A 312-km, 14-in. subsea pipeline connects the Ruby platform with the Senipah terminal on East Kalimantan operated by a subsidiary of Total.

PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur buys the gas for use in a fertilizer plant.

Mubadala operates the field and holds a 70% working interest in the Sebuku production sharing contract. Total E&P Sebuku and Inpex South Makassar Ltd. hold 15% each.
