Bass implemented a production optimisation upgrade at the Bunian and Tangai facilities to process additional oil and fluid production expected after the completion of drilling.

Speaking on the upgrade, Bass managing director Tino Guglielmo told Proactive that the company was getting ready for an exciting drilling program in 2019.

He said: “For us to be able to increase production just by optimisation methodologies is just wonderful.

“We’ve got a drilling program in 2019, 2020, that’ll be somewhere between two and four wells to be drilled in our existing properties.

“New properties that we’re looking at acquiring all the time, we’re prepared to actually go in and do remediation, and do a little bit of drilling through ‘19.”

The award for Bunian 5’s drilling contract has been delayed due to the availability of 650 horsepower rigs.

Bass has proposed to issue a tender for the provision of 750-horsepower capacity drilling rigs which are more common to the area.

The drilling program is expected to increase the production capacity of Tangai-Sukananti as well as increase developed reserves.

Optimisation and upgrade planning work at the Bunian and Tangai facilities continues.
