BW Energy has announced that production has safely started from their third well of the Hibiscus / Ruche Phase 1 development in the Dussafu licence offshore Gabon. Well performance is in line with expectations with current production at approximately 6000 bpd.
The DHIBM-5H well was drilled as a horizontal well from the BW MaBoMo production facility to a total depth of 4245 m into Gamba sandstone reservoir at the Hibiscus field. Following completion, the Borr Norve jack-up has commenced drilling operations on the fourth production well (DHIBM-6H).
Carl Krogh Arnet, the CEO of BW Energy, said: "I would like to complement the drilling team for their efficient delivery of the third Hibiscus production well while extending our excellent HSE performance. We continue to see robust production rates and receive well data that confirms excellent reservoir quality. This supports our expectations for continued successive production growth in Gabon through 2023 and into early 2024 as we complete the drilling program.”
The drilling campaign targets four Hibiscus Gamba and two Ruche Gamba wells which are expected to bring the total oil production up to approximately 40 000 bpd when all wells are completed in early 2024. The oil produced at Hibiscus / Ruche is transported by pipeline to the BW Adolo FPSO for processing and storage before offloading to export tankers.
