Balai Cluster begins extended well testing offshore Malaysia

BC Petroleum Sdn. Bhd., operator of the Balai Cluster fields offshore Malaysia, has begun a program of extended well testing on the Balai-2 well via the recently commissioned Balai Mutiara early production vessel (EPV).

The test began on Nov. 6 and flowed for 24 hr before a brief shut-in to obtain pressure performance data.

The well flowed from two perforated intervals at an initial range of 4,000-4,200 b/d of 39° API gravity oil.

Production then recommenced and will now continue for an unspecified extended period.

The program is designed to provide additional production and reservoir performance to aid the full field development planning process.

Subject to commercial viability, BCP hopes to submit a field development plan and move towards a final investment decision before yearend.

Shareholders in BCP are Roc Oil Co. 48%, Dialog Group 32%, and Petronas Carigali 20%.
