Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sendirian Berhad, BSP has recently completed a new onshore Darat Gas Project three months ahead of schedule. It is a significant milestone in the further development of the mature onshore asset which has still large potential based on the company’s current subsurface studies incorporating the latest 3D seismic results acquired recently.
The gas will be piped offshore to the AMPA09 gas processing platform and exported to Brunei LNG plant in Lumut. According to Norsalina Wati Haji Abidin, Darat Asset Manager, Darat Gas is expected to supply around 5 percent of Brunei LNG’s feedstock in coming years, a major step towards growing our gas production from onshore fields.
The project incorporates the results of the state of the art Rasau 3D Seismic Survey, acquired in 2015 to provide a good assessment of the complex geology of the field. The project is expected to produce up to 2 million Cubic Metres per day of gas through a new gas processing facility located near the existing Rasau production station. Strong coordination and meticulous preparation across teams in BSP and business partners, as well as engagements with the local community, helped make it possible to produce first gas earlier than planned. In total around 300 BSP staff and contractors were involved in the project.
