Oilex has completed the Cambay-73 oil and gasfacilities and will begin to connect the pipeline next month.
Construction of the pipeline has commenced and it is expected to be ready for connection to the production facilities during May 2015 when final commissioning to be completed.
Cambay-73 will supply gas to a low pressure gas market in the vicinity of the Cambay Field and is expected to produce approximately 50-60boepd of gas and condensate. The condensate will be separated at the field and trucked to a nearby refinery together with other Cambay crude oil produced.
Oilex has also started an assessment of nearby legacy wells which may be capable of being tied into the Cambay-73 facilities should they have surplus capacity.
Ron Miller, managing director of Oilex, said “The work by Oilex to complete the production facilities on budget and ahead of schedule is a significant achievement by our India Project Team.
“Gas production will lead to increased cashflow from the Cambay Field and is significant step in our 2015 programme.
“Oilex continues to deliver on its plan of production, cashflow and reserves to create a sustainable business in the midst of a robust market for petroleum energy.”
