Petronas uses ICES to access deepwater oil


Dateline 2012-11-21:

PETRONAS announced that the Gumusut-Kakap field, Malaysia’s second deepwater development, achieved oil production on 18th November.

This first production was achieved via an interim crude evacuation system (ICES) where two production wells from the Gumusut-Kakap field are tied back to the existing Kikeh field’s floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

The production is expected to reach a maximum of 25,000 barrels per day (bpd) upon ramping up of the two wells.

The Gumusut-Kakap field is the second deepwater field development in Malaysia after the Kikeh field.
