WZ6-1 is located in the Beibu Gulf, about 65 kilometers from Beihai city, Guangxi province. The field, with an average water depth of 35 meters, is also near the producing filed WZ11-4 and WZ12-1.
There's only one unmanned wellhead platform in WZ6-1 oil field. Its development mainly relied on the facilities and sub-sea pipelines of the adjacent WZ 12-1 oil field.
WZ 6-1 is expected to see 3,700 barrels of oil per day at its peak production.
Liu Jian, Executive Vice President of the Company commented, ''The successful startup of WZ6-1, a marginal oil field, is a further evidence of the improvement of our ability to develop oil and gas resources. It's also the Company's new progress in implementing its rolling exploration strategy on Weixinan Trough in the Beibu Gulf.''
CNOOC Ltd. holds 100% interest in the field.
