BÀ RỊA-VŨNG TÀU — The PetroVietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV Gas) on Monday welcomed the first flow of gas from Field SV, part of a project to develop the offshore SV-DN gas field to the Nam Côn Sơn 2 pipeline on the mainland.
The project to develop the SV-DN gas field, located in the Nam Côn Sơn Basin, is a prerequisite for the implementation of the Nam Con Son 2 project, which consists of the Nam Côn Sơn 2 and the SV-DN gas pipeline sub-projects, invested in by PV Gas.
The SV-DN field generates about 1.5 billion cu.m. of gas and 2.8 million barrels of crude oil and gas condensate each year and helps ensure the firm’s gas supply for electricity production and consuming facilities in the southeastern region.
PV Gas Deputy General Director Hoàng Văn Quang said aside from the implementation of the Nam Côn Sơn 2 pipeline project, building a pipeline for transporting gas from Field SV-DN has also been promptly carried out to collect and deliver about 2-3 billion cu.m. of gas every year from the SV-DN and Thiên Ưng-Đại Hùng fields to the mainland.
Despite the huge workload, poor weather conditions at sea and COVID-19 that has hampered the transportation of equipment from abroad, contractors have still managed to complete the projects, he said. — VNS
