CNOOC says that Phase I of
Southeast Sumatra (SES) Gas Project was successfully brought onstream. The
contractual gas delivery rate of Phase I is 55 million cubic feet per day via
The gas project is located about 120 kilometers offshore West Java in
Indonesia, with an average water depth of 30 meters. The development
facilities in Phase I include one processing platform, three sub-sea pipelines
and one sub-sea cable. The natural gas produced will mainly be supplied to
state utility company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) power plants.
The SES Gas Project consists of two phases, and Phase II is expected to
start gas delivery in early 2007.
"The successful production commencement of SES gas project
indicates that we are able to accomplish development of overseas oil and gas
fields in a safe and effective manner," said Liu Jian, CNOOC's executive vice president. "We're glad to supply gas in Indonesia
and contribute to the local economy as a foreign investor."
