It is anticipated that production will ramp up to a peak of 15,000 barrels per day (Tap share 4,500 barrels per day) during the first quarter of 2015.

Production from the Manora commenced on 11 November 2014 with two wells, MNA-01 and MNA-02, initially flowing at a combined rate of 2,200 barrels per day (gross).

Manora is now producing from three wells, MNA-01, MNA-02 and MNA-03.

Manora is forecast to have an 11-year economic life, which could be further enhanced if discoveries are made within tieback distance. Some of these opportunities may be able to be drilled from the Manora platform.

MNA-05 has been handed over to production. An additional five surface holes have been batch drilled and cased (MNA-04, MNA-06, MNA-07, MNA-08 and MNA-10).

MNA-06 encountered a problem while drilling the 12-1/4” hole section with the bottom hole assembly left in hole.

The operator, Mubadala Petroleum, is planning to suspend operations on this well and will move on to drilling the reservoir section of well MNA-07.

The Manora A platform is located within the Gulf of Thailand in 46 metres of water. The development drilling programme calls for drilling and completion of up to 15 wells (10 producers and five injectors), with the programme expected to take until the end of Q1 2015.

Mubadala estimates that the joint venture will have invested approximately USD 300m in the development by this time.
