Production from the Pateke-3H well was halted due to additional technical issues within the flow path. Prior to the Kan Tan IV rig being released from the site, a clean up flow of the well was performed and the repairs were successfully completed. However, additional constraints within the production flowpath is preventing full oil production to flow from the well.
AWE is reviewing the issue to determine the cause of the problem. Production is estimated to flow at a rate of 3,000 bopd once the well is fully cleaned.
The Pateke well is part of the Tui project, which is situated in the offshore Taranaki Basin in PEP 38158. Interest holders in the project are AWE, serving as the operator and holding a 42.5% interest; Mitsui E&P Australia Pty Limited holding a 35% interest; New Zealand Oil & Gas Limited holding a 12.5%; and Pan Pacific Petroleum holding the remaining 10% interest.
