CNOOC has announced that the Caofeidian 6-4 oilfield has commenced production.
The Caofeidian 6-4 oilfield is located in the midwest of the Bohai sea, with an average water depth of about 20 m. In addition to fully utilising the existing processing facilities of the Nanpu 35-2 oilfield and the Qinhuangdao 32-6 oilfield, the project has built a new central platform. A total of 42 development wells are planned, including 30 production wells, 12 water injection wells and water source wells. The project is expected to reach its peak production of approximately 15 000 bpd in 2023.
The Caofeidian 6-4 oilfield will actively promote green and low-carbon production. After putting into production, the project will achieve zero discharge of production and living sewage into the sea. With the introduction of onshore power engineering, it is estimated that about 16 000 t of standard coal will be saved, and about 40 000 t of carbon dioxide will be reduced annually.
CNOOC holds a 100% interest in the Caofeidian 6-4 oilfield and acts as the operator.
