Murphy Oil Corp. completed a five-well drilling campaign at the Belum gas field in shallow water offshore Sarawak, east Malaysia in the second quarter of 2015, the company said in its quarterly results Wednesday.
The U.S. independent oil company indicated that the “Belum field has lower nitrogen content that will blend into our current gas production fields and allow us to de-risk our 250 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) contractual volume on demand.”
Murphy, currently drilling oil wells at the Permas shallow water development, added that Sarawak gas production for the second quarter was 111 MMcf/d and liquids production was around 14,700 barrels of oil per day (bopd.) Meantime, the firm successfully finalized the planned outage in early second quarter at its Sarawak facilities to complete regulator-required inspections and major maintenance.
