Liwan Gas Project
Located approximately 300 kilometres southeast of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Liwan Gas Project was the first deepwater gas project offshore China and delivered first production in 2014, seven years after the initial discovery.
The Liwan 3-1 and Liuhua 34-2 fields share a subsea production system, subsea pipeline transportation and onshore gas processing infrastructure. Husky has a 49 percent interest and operates the deepwater infrastructure, including the subsea wells, deepwater flowlines, control systems and manifolds, and the mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) unit on the shallow water platform.
Husky’s partner CNOOC Ltd. operates the shallow water facilities, including the platform, subsea pipeline to shore and the onshore Gaolan Gas Terminal. The terminal extracts condensates and liquids, and compresses and moves the gas to commercial markets in mainland China.
Gas production is covered by a long-term sales contract, while condensates and natural gas liquids (NGLs), such as propane and butane, are sold separately.
First production was achieved in November 2020 at Liuhua 29-1, the third deepwater field at Liwan. A gas sales agreement is in place with Husky holding a 75% interest in the field, plus exploration cost recovery volumes.
Pearl River Mouth Basin
Husky has a production sharing contract for the 15/33 exploration block in the Pearl River Mouth Basin offshore China.
Commercial development plans are being progressed following the successful drilling and testing of the XJ34-3-2 exploration well.
Husky is advancing gas projects in the Madura Strait offshore Indonesia. These include the producing liquids-rich BD Project and the development of the shallow water MDA-MBH and MDK fields.
The BD Project achieved first production in 2017. The MDA-MBH and MDK fields are being developed in tandem, with first gas anticipated in the 2022-2023 timeframe.
The Company holds a 40 percent interest in these fields, which are being developed in partnership with operator CNOOC Limited and an affiliate of Samudra Energy Ltd., an Indonesian company.
Additional natural gas discoveries in the Madura Strait are being evaluated for commercial development.
