Well Intervention Boosts ABG-008 Production to 1,580 BOPD
PT Pertamina EP has managed to increase the production of the Akasia Bagus (ABG)-008 well, from 578 barrels of oil per day (bopd) to 1,580 bopd, through a good intervention program in early 2021. The general manager of Pertamina EP Asset 3, Wisnu Hindadari, revealed that the ABG-008 well was one of three Step Out wells in the Akasia Bagus Field, drilled by Pertamina EP in 2020 and started the production in August last year. Step Out wells are wells drilled outside the existing structure situated in an oil and gas work area.
Wisnu also explained that the initial production target of the well was 460 bopd. However, a production test proved that the well could produce up to 578 bpd. "This production test also showed that the potential of ABG-008 was even greater, prompting Pertamina EP Asset 3 team to propose a well intervention program through a stimulation which will be executed on January 6, 2021," he elaborated on Sunday (2/21).
