Oilex Ltd. has completed the Cambay-73 oil and gas production facilities in Cambay Field in Gujarat, India on budget and ahead of schedule.
The facilities are now ready for start-up and awaiting arrival of the low pressure gas pipeline to site. Construction of the pipeline has commenced and it is expected to be at site ready for connection to the production facilities during May 2015.
This will enable final commissioning to be completed. Cambay-73 will supply gas to a low pressure gas market in the vicinity of the Cambay Field and is expected to produce approximately 50-60 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) of gas and condensate.
The condensate will be separated at the field and trucked to a nearby refinery together with other Cambay crude oil produced. Oilex has also started an assessment of nearby legacy wells which may be capable of being tied into the Cambay-73 facilities should they have surplus capacity.
