Hail starts production off Abu Dhabi

Written by  OE Staff Wednesday, 08 November 2017 15:14

Production has started from the Hail oil field offshore Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, says Abu Dhabi Oil Co., a subsidiary of Japan's Cosmo Energy Exploration & Production Co.

The production from the Hail oil field is the first oil field development in the Middle East by a Japanese operator since 2011, Cosmo says.

The field is the fourth field in the Abu Dhabi Oil Co. (ADOC) shallow water concession west of Abu Dhabi to start production. The other three fields - Mubarraz, Umm Al-Anbar, and Neewat Al- Ghalan – came online in 1973, 1989 and 1995 respectively.

Hail is adjacent to the existing fields, making maximum use of facilities already in use. It is on an artificial island communicated via subsea pipeline to current production and export facilities on Mubarraz Island. The development includes 10 producing wells, says partner Cepsa.

The field was acquired when the concession was renewed for 30 years on 12 December 2012.
