HONG KONG -- The Bozhong (BZ) 28-2S oil field in the Bohai bay is onstream, according to CNOOC. Production began with 4,000 b/d of oil via four wells. The main development facilities include one central platform, 49 wells, and one FPSO.
Production is expected to ramp up an average 25,000 b/d of oil by 2011.
BZ 28-2S, together with the adjacent BZ29-4, BZ28-2SN, and BZ34-1N, is subject to joint development to maximize the commercial value, the company says.
According to the company's 2009 plan, there will be five new projects coming onstream in Bohai bay. The early start-up of BZ28-2S will serve to accelerate the development of the other four projects, the company reports.
