The Canada-based firm, which jointly operate the field with China’s CNOOC, indicated that construction of a wellhead platform and pipeline infrastructure at the liquids-rich BD field is around 45 percent complete, while a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility is being built to process the gas and liquids production from the field. Malaysia’s Bumi Armada Berhad and its Indonesian partner PT Armada Nusantara were awarded the $1.18 billion FPSO supply contract in December 2014.

These fields are expected to be progressively brought on production between 2017 and 2019. The operator has also secured approval for a plan of development for the MDK field, which is targeted to be tied into the MDA-MBH fields in the same period.
Husky added that combined net sales volumes from the BD and MDA-MBH fields are expected to reach around 90 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of gas and 2,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day of associated liquids.
Elsewhere in Indonesia, the firm said a 3D seismic program on the Anugerah block offshore East Java was recently completed, with the data currently being evaluated to determine the potential for future exploration activity.
