Greater Enfield produces oil via Ngujima-Yin (FPSO)
02 September 2019
Woodside advised that on 25 August 2019, the Greater Enfield Project produced first oil through the Ngujima-Yin floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).
The Greater Enfield Project was approved in 2016, to develop the Laverda Canyon, Norton over Laverda and Cimatti oil accumulations through a subsea tie-back to the Ngujima-Yin FPSO, located over the Vincent field. Total investment for the project was approximately USD1.9 bn (100%).
The project scope included a major refit of the Ngujima-Yin FPSO which was successfully completed at the Keppel Tuas Shipyard in Singapore. The FPSO returned to waters off the North West Cape on 5 May 2019 and production from the Vincent wells recommenced on 4 July 2019.
Installation of subsea infrastructure has been completed, with all the project’s 12 development wells now also complete.
Production from the Greater Enfield reservoirs is an important contribution to Woodside’s targeted annual production of approximately 100 MMboe in 2020.
