Chevron: First gas flows from Bangka field
U.S. oil firm Chevron has brought its Bangka field development project online with gas now flowing at the field offshore Indonesia. This is the first phase of the Chevron-run Indonesia Deepwater Development (IDD) Project in East Kalimantan.
Chuck Taylor, Managing Director Chevron IndoAsia Business Unit:“First gas for the Bangka Project is a significant milestone and highlights Chevron’s commitment to continue supporting the government’s energy goals…”
The Bangka project has a design capacity of 110 million cubic feet of natural gas and 4,000 barrels of condensate per day. Chevron has a 62 percent interest in the Bangka project with the other contributing joint venture participants being Eni with a 20 percent interest and Tip Top with an 18 percent interest.
A final investment decision was reached in 2014, following government approvals. Chevron began drilling the development wells in the second half of 2014.
