PARIS, FRANCE: Total SA has started up production from the Badamyar project, south of Yangon, Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The project will enable an extension of the Yadana gas field’s 8 billion cubic meters per year production plateau beyond 2020.

The Badamyar project involves the installation of a new wellhead platform connected to the Yadana production facilities, and the drilling of 4 horizontal wells to develop Badamyar gas field as a satellite of Yadana. The project also includes a new compression platform. Launched in mid-2014, the project was completed with no lost time injury occurrences during the 5 million man-hours worked. 

Total is the operator of the project with a 31.2 percent interest. Its partners are Chevron-Unocal (28.3 percent), PTTEP (25.5 percent) and the national company MOGE (15 percent).

“Completed on schedule and with costs, 20 percent below budget, this second start-up by Total in 2017 demonstrates our capacity to effectively implement cost reduction programs. This project underscores Total’s commitment to develop gas projects to provide Myanmar and Thailand with affordable, reliable and clean energy to support the countries’ economic growth over the coming years,” said Arnaud Breuillac, president, exploration & production at Total.
