Maximum oil production of 834,000 barrels / day

Head of Special Unit the Upstream Oil and Gas (Migas SKK) Rudi Rubiandini estimates, production of crude oil and condensate in 2013, up 834,000 barrels per day.

“At present, production is 831,700 barrels per day and by the end of the 834 000 barrels per day,” he said in Jakarta on Tuesday.

According to him, the production level is still lower than the budget target set at 840,000 barrels per day.

“But, his accomplishments can be 99.3 percent and it was nice,” he said.

In the last 1.5 months, production is declining mainly due to a number of field maintenance cut gas condensate production.

However, he added, in the second half of 2013, the SKK optimistic that production could increase to 840,000 barrels per day.

Although, in the second half of 2013, the production of the Offshore North West Java (ONWJ) fell due to the work platform (platform).

However, in the second half as well, there is the addition of Block West Madura Offshore (WMO) which started production three wells.

In contrast to oil, Rudi optimistic “lifting” gas will exceed the budget target.

According to him, until the first half of 2013 production was still 6,998 BBTUD or lower than the budget target BBTUD 7175.

“However, we are optimistic until the end of 2013 will exceed the budget target,” he said.

Head of the Division of Oil and Gas Utilization Gas SKK Popi Nafis Ahmad added that the present downturn is “lifting” gas is mainly because there is a maintenance schedule Tangguh, Papua, and Bontang, East Kalimantan, and damage to electrical transformer in Cilegon, Banten.

“However, going forward, there is a field that will increase its production,” he said.

Which are expected to come from South Mahakam field managed by Total E & P Indonesia with a production rate of 115 MMSCFD, Musi East of PT Pertamina EP 20 MMSCFD, Epic Sengkang 12 MMSCFD, and Ruby from Pearl Oil Sebuku 6.7 MMSCFD.

Oil production PHE WMO 22.2 Thousand Barrels per Day

Production of Pertamina Hulu Energi (PHE) West Madura Offshore increase. If the beginning of June 2013 and in the range of 20,300 barrels of oil per day (bopd), in early July it pierces 22,200 bopd. Increase in production was achieved from 3 new production wells.
WMO block production was 70% higher than when handed over to the government of Kodeco Pertamina Energy, May 7, 2011. When it blocks the production of 13,000 bpd WMO stay. 22.2000 bopd to production performance is also higher than the target set by the oil and gas SKK 20 443 boph.
Good news from WMO block was made Senior Executive VP & General Manager of PHE WMO Bambang Kardono after accepting the award from the Governor of East Java Environment on page Soekarwo PT Semen Indonesia, last weekend in Gresik. “PHE WMO has reached a level of 22,200 bopd of oil production,” he said.
He added that the recent increase in production obtained from the drilling of new production wells 38B-5 PHE, PHE PHE 40A-5 and 40A-3. Therefore, it is confident that by the end of 2013 could surpass the average production target of 20,443 bopd given by the government.
Bambang explained, of 3 new production wells that produced approximately 4,000 bopd. But because it is also absorbed to cover declaining rate reached 50% per year, the production of WMO block can only go up from 20,300 bopd in early June to 22,200 bopd.
“This year we expect to drill 21 production wells and nine exploration wells. Needs a lot of wells drilled since we also had to cope with a relatively high rate declaining, as well as trying to find new oil and gas reserves,” he said.
Bambang added that, in addition to continue to drill new production wells, is now concentrating PHE WMO project complete new installation of the subsea pipeline connecting several new production platform with Poleng Processing Platform (PPP).
“Hopefully early August subsea pipeline installation projects it already can diselesaikan.Keberadaan new pipe that can further increase the production rate of oil-rig a new production platform,” said Bambang Kardono.
Since April 1, PHE WMO continues to increase production from 9,000 bopd to 12,000 bopd. After the break in May 17,000 bopd and 20,300 bopd in June. Peak at the beginning of production back in July increased to 22,200 bopd.

“The climax at the beginning of July back production increased to 22,200 bopd, where it is expected to end in 2013 still continues to rise more than that, do’akan, yes,” said Bambang Kardono.
