BW Energy has produced first oil from the DTM-4H Gamba well drilled as part of Tortue Phase 2 development project offshore Gabon, the company said in a news release.
Production began on March 7, just three days after BW marked first oil from the DTM-5H well.
“We are pleased to see production rates from the two new wells in line with our expectations,” BW Energy CEO Carl K. Arnet said in the release. “It is another confirmation that the Tortue Field is a world-class asset.”
The project is located in the Dussafu Marin Permit.
The wells, which are two of the four production wells that will be tied back to the FPSO BW Adolo, helped boost production to about 20,000 barrels per day (bbl/d), the company said.
“Drilling continues on the second cluster which is scheduled to begin production by June 2020,” BW Energy said.
Following completion of Phase 2, production is projected to reach between 17,300 bbl/d and 21,600 bbl/d gross from six producing wells this year. That’s up from an average of 11,800 bbl/d gross last year.
The Dussafu Marin JV consists of BW Energy, the operator with 73.5% working interest; Tullow Oil; 10% working interest; Gabon Oil Co., 9% working interest; and Panoro Energy, 7.5% working interest.
