Pelikan Field Starts Production Offshore Indonesia

UK independent energy firm Premier Oil reported Tuesday the start-up of gas production from the Pelikan field in the Natuna Sea Block A offshore Indonesia.

Premier said that production from Pelikan began Monday – adding to production from the Naga field (also on Natuna Sea Block A), which started in November.

Pelikan and Naga is delivering additional reserves into Singapore and the domestic Indonesian market under Premier's long-term gas contracts. The firm said that production of up to 200 billion British thermal units per day will allow it to increase operational flexibility and to respond to increase Singaporean or domestic gas demand.

Premier operates Natuna Sea Block A, with a 28.67-percent stake, on behalf of partners that include KUFPEC, PTT and Petronas.
