CALGARY, Canada– Husky Energy has provided updates on its E&P programs offshore Southeast Asia and eastern Canada.
At theLiwan gas project offshore China, gross production from the two producing fields averaged 371 MMcf/d in sales gas volumes, with associated liquids averaging 16,500 b/d.
Construction atLiuhua 29-1, the third deepwater field at Liwan, is under way with detailed design work in progress.
Drilling of three additional wells is scheduled to commence in 4Q 2018, adding to the four wells previously drilled. All three wells will be tied into the existing Liwan infrastructure. First gas is anticipated around the end of 2020, with target net production of 45 MMcf/d of gas and 1,800 b/d of liquids when fully ramped up. Husky has 75% working interest with CNOOC (25%).
The company is progressing commercial development plans following the successful drilling of an oil exploration well onblock 15/33 in the South China Sea, about 160 km (99.4 mi) southeast of Hong Kong. Husky is the operator during the exploration phase, with a working interest of 100% in the wells. CNOOC may assume operatorship and up to a 51% working interest, with exploration cost recovery from production allocated to Husky.
During the quarter, an exploration well was drilled on the nearbyblock 16/25. The results will be evaluated further.
At the liquids-rich BD project offshore Indonesia, gross gas sales averaged 100 MMcf/d with associated liquids production of 10,400 b/d. Liquids production was 40% higher than expected.
At the combined MDA-MBH fields in the Madura Strait, seven production wells are scheduled to be drilled in 2019 and come online in 2020.
Offshore Newfoundland, construction was completed on the base slab of theWest White Rose project’s concrete gravity structure, and slipforming of the column is under way. Work continues on the topsides and living quarters.
First oil is anticipated in 2022, with West White Rose expected to reach peak production of 75,000 b/d in 2025 as development wells are drilled and brought online.
At the North Amethyst infill well, remediation work to address a high water cut was unsuccessful and future intervention options on this well are being evaluated.
Two well workovers were completed at the White Rose field during the quarter and two additional infill wells are scheduled to come online in 4Q 2018. These are part of a program to offset reservoir declines at the White Rose field and its satellite extensions until the startup ofWest White Rose in 2022.
Evaluation of the successfulWhite Rose A-24 well is ongoing.
