JX Nippon said earlier this week that its subsidiary, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia), and its partner Petronas Carigali started production from the Layang field on December 3, 2019.

JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia) is the operator of Block SK10 offshore Sarawak where the field is located.

The Layang field, in addition to its natural gas production which started in May 2017, started oil production by using a floating production, storage and offloading system (FPSO) named FPSO Helang.

The production of oil from Layang is estimated at about 3,000 barrels per day, and about 10,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (BOED) with natural gas combined.

The FPSO Helang is also planned to be utilized for production and shipping of oil from the Helang field in Block SK10. The production of oil and natural gas from Layang and Helang with the use of FPSO Helang is estimated to reach about 20,000 BOED.

This expansion of production facilities in Block SK10 comprised of Layang, Helang, and Beryl gas field.
