Petronas announce oil production from the Balai field has commenced
PETRONAS is pleased to announce that oil production from the Balai field in the Balai Cluster Risk Service Contract (RSC) area, has commenced on 6 November 2013. The field’s first oil was achieved utilising an early production vessel (EPV) as a part of the RSC area’s extended well testing (EWT) programme. The Balai Cluster RSC was awarded in August 2011 to BC Petroleum Sdn Bhd, a partnership between Roc Oil (Malaysia) Pty Ltd, Dialog D & P Sdn Bhd and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.
It is the second RSC that has successfully achieved oil production after the Berantai gas field. The development area is located approximately 100-130 km northeast of Bintulu. The project facilities consist of four light weight Tarpon Guyed Caisson Well Head Platforms and an EPV, namely the EPV Balai Mutiara, with on board storage capacity of about 50,000 barrels, well testing facilities and accommodation for 40 persons.
The EWT is part of the Balai Cluster pre-development phase and is designed to provide additional production and reservoir performance information required from the oil fields in order to support the field development planning process.
