Husky Commissions Liuhua 29-1 Field Off China
Toronto-listed Husky Energy on September 29 announced that commissioning was complete at Liuhua 29-1, the third field to be developed at the $6.5bn Liwan gas project offshore China.
“As a result of strong cooperation between Husky and its long-time partner Cnooc, the seven-well Liuhua 29-1 project was completed safely, ahead of schedule and $100mn below budget despite the Covid-19 pandemic and associated global economic volatility. First gas is expected to be delivered to end users starting in early November,” Husky said.
The 29-1 field is tied into the existing infrastructure at Liwan, which includes the Liwan 3-1 and Liuhua 34-2 fields within Block 29/26, approximately 300 km southeast of Hong Kong. The Liwan gas project also comprises the Liwan 3-1 and Liuhua 34-2 fields, which came on stream in March and December of 2014. Husky has 49% stakes in these two deposits, with Cnooc controlling the remaining interests.
Year to date, the two producing fields at Liwan have yielded approximately 390mn ft3/day of natural gas and 16,000 barrels/day of associated liquids, Husky said. The project is expected to deliver 450mn ft3/day and 17,500 b/day of liquids in 2021.
