JAMBIDAILY – Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities (SKK Migas) with Medco E&P Natuna Ltd. succeeded in realizing the additional 2 (two) development wells in the Kerisi Field in the South Natuna Sea Block B Work Area and obtained results that were greater than initial expectations. This success is a proud result of the hard work and innovation made to increase national oil and gas production and lifting amid the COVID-19 pandemic and low oil prices.
“We are happy and give our high appreciation to Medco E&P Natuna Ltd which has succeeded in realizing the additional drilling activities for the 2 (two) development wells, and moreover giving better results than initial expectations. This is very meaningful in the effort to meet the 2020 national oil and gas lifting target, “said Plt. Head of Program and Communication Division of SKK Migas Susana Kurniasih in Jakarta (4/9).
Drilling activities are carried out by carrying out a sidetrack on wells whose production has decreased, namely KA-08 and KA-09. Oil and gas from the Kerisi Field is then piped to the Belanak facility. After the sidetrack, Sumur KA-09 started production on July 29, with a flow rate of 20 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd). Meanwhile, the KA-08 well started production on August 9 with a flow rate of 5,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd).
“This achievement far exceeds the initial target of 8 mmscfd for the KA-09ST1 well and 560 bopd for the KA-08ST1 well. This again shows that the region is still good, “added Susana.
Reflecting on this success, Susana asked other Cooperation Contract Contractors (KKKS) to immediately carry out production operation activities according to the targets agreed upon with SKK Migas. “If other KKKS are committed to their respective targets, we are optimistic that the national oil and gas lifting will be achieved,” said Susana.
Kerisi Field is one of the oil and gas fields located in Block B of the South Natuna Sea, located in the Anambas Islands, Riau Islands Province. The field was first produced in December 2007. Previously, the Working Area was operated by ConocoPhillips Indonesia, but was later acquired and operated by Medco E&P Natuna Ltd. starting 2016.
