Anadarko expects to have 10 wells on line and producing approximately 15,000 barrels of oil per day by the end of October. Development drilling is ongoing, with gross production expected to ramp up to 22,000 barrels of oil per day from 22 wells by mid-2007.

The development project straddles blocks 04/36 and 05/36 in Bohai Bay in about 75 feet of water. The project consists of a core-area gathering platform and two smaller unmanned satellite platforms, which are tied back approximately 13 kilometers to the Hai Yang Shi You 112 floating production, storage and offloading vessel.
