Indonesia: Premier set for Anoa development well start-up

  • Project & Tenders

UK oil company Premier Oil has completed the Anoa development well in the Natuna Sea Block A and is set to bring it on production in early August.

Premier Oil is the operator of the Natuna Sea Block A offshore Indonesia with 28.67% interest. Partners in the block are Petronas, PTT, Pertamina and Kufpec.

The Block A consists of four separate producing fields, which have been developed via a combination of platforms and subsea tie-backs to the Anoa platform and the Gajah Baru WHP and CPP.

According to Premier’s update on Monday, the Anoa development well (WL-5X) achieved an equipment limited flow rate of 28mmscf/d, significantly higher than the 18mmscf/d rate achieved with the original well test, and estimated reserves for this well alone are approximately 75-100 Bcf.

The WL-5x well made the Lama discovery under Anoa in 2012. Premier has been working to re-complete the well and tie it into production in the third quarter of 2017.

The outcome of the long-term production test from this well will help to prove up the production contribution from the deeper zones within the Anoa field, Premier concluded.
