Premier Turns on Taps at Chim Sao

Premier Oil has commenced production from the Chim Sao oil project offshore southern Vietnam. Oil production will commence from six wells, and overall production output should plateau at about 25,000 bopd. Chim Sao's development consists of a single wellhead platform and an FPSO.

Hydrocarbons will be processed on the FPSO with oil being exported via shuttle tankers and the gas by subsea pipeline into existing gas infrastructure. The operator plans to further explore and appraise the development in 2012 in order to add additional resources to the project.

Chim Sao is located on Blocks 12W and 12E in 377 feet (115 meters) of water, around 248 miles (400 kilometers) southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, offshore Vietnam. Premier serves as the operator of the oil and gas field, holding a 53.125% interest.
