Bass Oil completes Tangai and Bunian 1 repairs, Bunian 5 development to double Tangai production

The company is looking to expand its portfolio with additional prospective oil properties.

The monthly average oil price was US$61.01

Bass Oil Ltd (ASX:BAS) has returned both Bunian and Tangai 1 to production after a well service rig carried out pump repairs, with production gradually returning to more than 700 barrels of oil per day during July.

In June the field had a total joint venture production of 632 barrels of oil per day, despite Bunian 1, Tangai 1 and Tangai 3 wells shut due to downhole pump failures.

The company has also received tenders for the provision of 750 horsepower capacity drilling rig for the drilling of the Bunian 5 well.

Bass’ team in Jakarta is negotiating and finalising contract terms and conditions with the preferred tenderer.

The aim is to drill the Bunian 5 well as soon as the rig is available, likely to be October.

Production is expected to double from the field, taking up remaining available production capacity of the Tangai-Sukananti field facilities as swell as increasing developed reserves.
