Baker Hughes Incorporated announced that PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (PCSB) has entered into a long-term Oilfield Service Agreement (OFSA) with Baker Hughes to enhance the recoverable reserves and production of hydrocarbons in the Greater D18 fields, offshore Malaysia.
The 23-year agreement is the result of a collaborative, 2 1/2-year field development study, leveraging Baker Hughes' reservoir evaluation capabilities to analyze the geology and reservoir attributes of the mature and compartmentalized D18 field. Challenged with production declines, Baker Hughes successfully deployed two integrated production enhancement programs to revitalize production in target wells. Through further analysis, technical experts developed a comprehensive field development plan with fit-for-purpose technology solutions.
"We have utilized our best people to come up with solutions which are going to help PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd. [PCSB] achieve their goals of increased oil recovery from mature fields. The partnership between PCSB and Baker Hughes on this project represents a significant milestone in expanding our offering with reservoir development in addition to our traditional products and services portfolio," says Zvonimir Djerfi, President of Asia Pacific Region for Baker Hughes.
