The Dongfang1-1 gas field is located in Yinggehai basin of the Beibu Gulf with an average water depth of approximately 70m.

In addition to fully utilize the existing facilities of Dongfang1-1, this adjustment project has also built one wellhead platform. There are seven producing wells in total with five wells currently producing approximately 53 MMcf/d of natural gas. The adjustment project is expected to reach its ODP designed peak production of approximately 54 MMcf/d in 2015.

The Dongfang1-1 is an independent gas field in which CNNOC is the operator and holds 100% interest.

CNNOC discovered a mid-sized oil find at Liuhua 20-2 in the eastern South China Sea in May, where oil pay at a total thickness of 35.2m was encountered. The oil production of the well tested around 8000 b/d and the crude oil density is approximately 0.75, CNOOC said.

In April, the company’s Kenli 10-1 field came online in the Bohai Bay.
