Bluewater is pleased to announce that its FPSO Glas Dowr has started production on the Kitan field in the Joint Petroleum Development Area offshore East Timor/Australia.

Start of production follows a period of waiting for the field operator to complete laying of flowlines and connection of risers and umbilicals after the FPSO was installed and ready to receive oil by mid August. The Glas Dowr is operated by Bluewater under a 5 to 10 year lease contract with Eni.

Bluewater’s President and CEO Hugo Heerema says: ’we are happy that oil production has finally started and are looking forward to long term and safe production operations at Kitan. Before installation at the Kitan field a major upgrade to the FPSO was performed at Sembawang yard in Singapore, where in recent years also Bluewater FPSO’s Aoka Mizu and Munin were submitted to construction and modification projects’.
The Glas Dowr is expected to produce 40.000 barrels of oil per day from 3 production wells. The FPSO site is in approximately 344 meters of water depth and the Kitan reservoir is expected to yield some 35 million barrels of oil.
