Both companies’ corporate staff in Bangkok are now working remotely from home. At the Manora platform in the Gulf of Thailand, Mubadala, as operator, has put in place plans and procedures for business continuity, infection control, pandemic response, infectious disease outbreak managements, logistics, and aviation.
In additional, crew changes onto the Manora offshore facilities have been extended by two weeks to ensure staff undertake a period of 14 days’ quarantine before going offshore.
Discussions continue on a planned three-well development drilling and workover program this year at Manora, with Mubadala and Tap aligned on the choice of wells, drilling locations, volumes, and risks.
Initiatives include cancellation of one planed exploration well and a planned opex/workover program, with brownfield capex costs of $2.8 million deferred until 2021.
The overall 2020 Manora work program and budget in total has now been reduced by $14 million.
Production at the end of March 2020 averaged 5,536 b/d, 5% above the base plan for the year.
