China's CNOOC started production at its Enping 23-1 oil fields, in the Pearl River Mouth Basin of the South China Sea.
The oil fields have an average water depth of approximately 90m, in which CNOOC holds 100% interest.
There are currently three wells producing approximately 5600 b/d. The project is expected to reach its ODP designed peak production of approximately 24,800 b/d in 2018.
In addition to fully utilizing the existing facilities of Enping 24-2 oilfield, the overall development program (ODP) of Enping 23-1 project teamed up with Enping 23-2, Enping 23-7 and Enping 18-1 oilfields for regional joint development. The main production facilities of Enping 23-1, Enping 23-2 and Enping 23-7 oilfields include one platform and 13 producing wells.
