HONG KONG -- CNOOC Ltd.'s LiuHua (LH) 11-1 oil field in the eastern South China Sea, has fully restarted production. The field is operating steadily and producing 23,000 b/d of oil.
LH 11-1 started temporary production on June 27, 2007. During the process, all its 25 wells, which had been suspended for more than a year, successfully re-opened, CNOOC says.
LH 11-1 suspended production following typhoon Chan Chu in May 2006, when parts of its production facilities were damaged.
"The production restart of LH 11-1 has enriched the company's experience in independently repairing the advanced equipments offshore, and strengthened the company's offshore operating teams," said Zhou Shouwei, CNOOC president.
