UPSTREAM DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES
After the successful completion of the EPC-1 project in June 1999, GNPOC development activities have continued in new fields like Bamboo, Munga, Garaad and Khairat North East. Garaad and Khairat NE oilfields were successfully tied in for production in September 2000 and August 2001, respectively.
OIL RECOVERY IN BAMBOO & MUNGA FIELDS
In 2002, development activities were focused on completing the Bamboo and Munga fields. The development scheme for Bamboo is divided into two phases: The Early Production Scheme which was completed in July 2001, and the Field Production Facility, which was completed and has started production since March 2002 at a rate of approximately 27,000 BOPD. The Munga Project was commissioned in August 2002, with field production facilities designed to handle a production capacity up to 40,000 BOPD.
In may 2004, Diffra production processing facility of 40,000 BOPD was commissioned. The current total daily production rate is more than 300,000 BOPD.
