CNOOC Limited (the "Company") announced that two new wellhead platforms of Suizhong 36-1 phase II have begun production in early December 2000. Following the successful start-up of Platform D on November 29, 2000, wellhead platform E and F of Suizhong 36-1 phase II were put into production on December 1 and 3, 2000 respectively.

The start-up of platform E is one month ahead of schedule. In the mean time, its central processing platform, a 70-kilometer oil pipeline to onshore, an onshore terminal as well as a crude oil jetty were brought into operation. The production of the 3 new wellhead platforms has been going smoothly since its start-up. Suizhong 36-1 Phase II comprises as follows: six newly constructed wellhead platforms, a central processing platform, a 70-kilometer oil pipeline to onshore, six subsea pipelines that run between platforms, six water injection pipelines, five subsea electric cables, an onshore terminal and a crude oil jetty.

Basic design began in January 1998 and was completed in August 1998. Fabrication started one month later. The remaining 3 wellhead platforms are scheduled to be brought into production in late 2001. Suizhong36-1 is the largest independent project among the Company′s nine development projects underway. The other projects include the largest gas field offshore China so far: Dongfang1-1 gas field.
