Dua oil field offshore Vietnam brought on stream

Premier Oil Group, which includes Santos Ltd., Adelaide, has brought its Dua oil field on stream offshore Vietnam.

Dua is a 3-well subsea development tied back to the nearby Chim Sao facilities on Block 12W of the Nam Con Son basin.

Gross production from the three wells is expected to be 8,000 b/d for the first year of production. The oil will be processed through the floating production, storage, and offloading vessel stationed at Chim Sao with sufficient capacity to handle the output from both fields.

Dua field was discovered and appraised in 2006 (OGJ Online, Oct. 11, 2006). Government approval for development was received in December 2012 and the final investment decision was made in August 2012. Subsea wells were completed in 2013 and the flow lines, umbilicals, and hook-ups to Chim Sao finished during this year’s first half.

Operator Premier holds 53.12% interest, Santos 31.88%, and PetroVietnam 15%.
