On January 17th, Tamarind commenced production from the Supplejack field. The Supplejack gas plant and export pipeline were completed within six months of design, development and construction. Gas production from the field will be at 4,000 Mscf/d and is exported via pipeline to the First Gas Network for distribution throughout New Zealand. The project team delivered the facility on time and on budget, with no HSE incidents.
On March 2nd, TNO started implementation of a multi-well workover program at the Cheal field to bring back production from existing shut in wells. Two of the wells will have additional perforations into new production zones to further enhance production. This program is expected to be complete during Q2 and will increase production by several hundred bbls per day.
Meanwhile, Tamarind continues subsurface analysis and planning for expanding its waterflooding program to increase recovery. This program will reach the final investment decision in Q2, with implementation later in 2020.
