Anoa gasfield first gas

JAKARTA, August 5, 2017 – A five-year development well at the Anoa gasfield, located off the north shore of Indonesia, was completed Thursday.


Premier Oil, the development’s operator with a stake of 28.67%, plans to begin production in early August. With estimated reserves of 2.12 bcm-2.83 bcm (75 bcf-100 bcf), the well flowed at a rate of around 793 cubic metres (28 mcf) per day, well above the original flow rate of 481 cubic metres (17 mcf) per day.

The well originally hit fractured Lama sandstones at a depth of 91.4 metres. Premier will tie the completed well back to the Anoa production platform.

Other partners in the joint venture include PTTEP (23%), Petronas (15%) and KUFPEC (33.33%).
