Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore announces latest quarterly Q10 Project update.
Initial gas production from the well Q10A-01 started on February 15, 2019. The Project was delivered with no safety incidents, ahead of time and within budget. Three additional wells have also been drilled by Tulip into the same field, the second well was brought on stream on March 24, the third on June 19 and the fourth well will be put into production in the coming days.
Together, the three wells currently on stream are flowing gas from the Q10-A platform at a current combined rate of approximately 3.1 million standard cubic meters per day – equivalent to approximately 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day. There have been intermittent production shut-ins due to commissioning, drilling operations and infrastructure maintenance and so far 145 million standard cubic meters of sales gas – equivalent to approximately 920,000 barrels of oil – have been produced from the field.
The field development plan is based on 5 wells, with an option for a 6th well from the Q10-A platform that has a total facility capacity estimated to be approximately 5 million standard cubic meters per day.
The commissioning of the Q10-A platform and pipeline is complete with only minor items remaining to be completed later in the year.
