Mubadala Petroleum, operator of the Manora Oil Development joint venture, has advised the first three development wells - MNA-01, MNA-02 and MNA-03 - have now been completed. It is now expected that production will commence from all three wells, resulting in a higher initial rate than forecast with two wells. Completion on MNA-05 has now commenced.
Platform commissioning at Manora is well underway, with hook up and commissioning nearing completion. Mubadala Petroleum has advised production is now expected to commence by mid-November.
TAP Managing Director and CEO, Troy Hayden, commented: “We are pleased with the operator’s progress on the drilling. The last of the critical systems should be handed over to operations by the end of the week, with production now scheduled to commence by mid-November.
“Despite this, the operator has advised peak production remains on track to be achieved in the first quarter of 2015 due to the progress of the development drilling.”
