BMG Geology & History
Development plan and activities
- The BMG oil and gas fields produced oil and gas
from five wells.
- Most oil-bearing zones contain a light (40o API),
high GOR fluid, moderate CO2 and low H2S.
Gas bearing zones at Basker and Manta typically
contain wet gas.
- Development wells were connected to a subsea
manifold at a water depth of 158 metres,
which was tied back to the FPSO “Crystal Ocean”
by subsea flowlines. Production capacity was
about 25,000 BOPD.
- A low pressure flare recovery compressor package
(to supplement the re-injection of produced gas)
was installed on the Crystal Ocean FPSO in 4Q 2009.
- Oil was transferred from the FPSO by flowline to
the shuttle tanker “Basker Spirit”, which stored
and transported oil to refineries in Victoria or
by ship-to-ship transfer into the export market.
- In November 2010, production operations utilising
the Crystal Ocean and the Basker Spirit were
suspended as a consequence of preparations to
move into a non-production phase in preparation
for a future field development.
Envisaged Development Plan
- In 2H 2008, ROC acquired its interests in the
Gippsland Basin via acquisition of Anzon
- At that time a significant FPSO development was
envisaged and various subsea equipment items
- The envisaged development is provided below.
Current considered future development option
does not rely on all of the previously procured
equipment. IT is this equipment that is now
available for sale at significant discounts
