CNOOC has announced that the Liuhua 21-2 oilfield has commenced production ahead of schedule.

The Liuhua 21-2 oilfield is located in the eastern South China Sea, with a water depth of about 437 m. In addition to fully utilising the existing processing facilities, the project has also built a set of underwater production system, with eight development wells planned in total. The project is expected to reach its peak production of approximately 15 070 bpd in 2023. Meanwhile, the oilfield recovers associated gas through the light hydrocarbon recovery system to effectively reduce methane emissions.

CNOOC holds a 100% interest in the Liuhua 21-2 oilfield and acts as the operator.

The Liuhua 16-2 oilfield group, which is China's first independent deepwater oilfield group, includes Liuhua 16-2, Liuhua 20-2 and Liuhua 21-2.
