Ophir starts production from Indonesia’s Kerendan field


LONDON -- Ophir Energy, a UK-based independent, has commenced commercial production from Kerendan field in Indonesia.

Production started at 3-5 MMscfd to enable PLN, the Indonesian state electricity distributor, to commission the power plant and transmission system, Ophir said in a statement Tuesday. Post commissioning, sales will initially be maintained at a restricted volume of 5 MMscfd at the request of PLN to enable them to meet demand for power in the immediate Buntok region.

The first 160-km section of the transmission line from the power plant to Buntok is complete, and the full 290-km transmission line to Tanjung is expected to be completed later this year. Once the Tanjung line is completed, production is expected to increase to 20 MMscfd.

Ophir holds a 70% operating interest in Kerendan field, Bangkanai PSC, and PT Saka Bangkanai Kalimantan holds a 30% equity interest.
