Galoc Production Company (GPC), the Operator of the Galoc Field offshore Palawan, Philippines, is pleased to advise that installation of the subsea equipment including the mooring and riser system for the FPSO has been completed. The installation vessel Lewek Champion undertook the work involving installation of over 1200te of equipment on the seabed some 290m below the surface whilst dynamically positioned using thrusters to maintain station. The work commenced on 3rd March and was concluded late yesterday, 27th March.

The Lewek Champion has departed the location and the last stage of preparation, being arrival, hook-up and commissioning of the FPSO, is about to commence.

The FPSO is currently located in Batangas, Philippines where final conversion work and pre-commissioning work is being undertaken to make her ready for hook-up to the mooring and riser system. Once hooked up, commissioning of the subsea equipment will be undertaken including some remedial work on one of the subsea trees. Commissioning of the FPSO once hooked up is expected to be concluded giving First Oil by late April 2008.

Initial production will involve testing of the 2 wells prior to achievement of steady state production. The 1
