CNOOC Ltd. started production at the Bozhong 19-6 condensate gas field first phase development project in central Bohai Sea.
The main production infrastructure lies in 20 m of water and includes one newly built central processing platform, three unmanned wellhead platforms, and one gas process terminal. Sixty-five development wells are planned to be commissioned, including forty-two production wells, twenty gas injection wells, and three water source wells.
The project is expected to achieve a peak production of about 37,000 boe/d in 2024.
Bozhong 19-6 is the first condensate gas field with a proved in-place volume of over 200 billion cu m of natural gas that has been put into operation in Bohai Bay, CNOOC said.
CNOOC is operator and holds 100% interest in the project.
