Description
 
The Indonesia Deepwater Development, located in the Kutal Basin, is considered to be one of the deepest projects ever undertaken offshore Indonesia, in water depths ranging from 2,500 to 6,000 feet (610 to 1,829 meters). The project consists of five deepwater fields, Gendalo, Maha, Gandang, Gehem and Bangka connecting to two processing hubs: Gendalo Hub (Gendalo, Maha, Gandang) and the Gehem Hub (Gehem). Bangka will be tied back to the West Seno FPU.

Three of the fields — Gandang, Gendalo, and Maha — are located in the Ganal concession while the remaining two — Bangka and Gehem — lie in the Rapak concession. Chevron holds an 80% operating interest in the fields, while Eni SPA holds the remaining 20%.

At an estimated coast of US $7 to 8.5 billion, the project has been met with many challenges ever since Chevron inherited the asset from Unocal. However, the operator is still pursuing the project's development since it is estimated to hold 2 to 4 Tcf of recoverable gas reserves.

Field Development

A plan of development for the project was submitted on August 1, 2007, and in October 2008, Chevron received approval to move forward with the plan. The preliminary plan consists of 30 subsea wells connecting to two FPU's; and Bangka's wells will be tied-back to the West Seno field, roughly 12 miles (20 kilometers) from the Gendalo field.

Towards the end of 2009, it was announced the operator was beginning the FEED process, which is likely to be split in two phases, with one study focusing on the surface production facilities and the other concentrating on the subsea component. On the facilities side, Chevron is seeking technical and cost information from contractors about certain types of FPU's.

Two gas export pipelines from both production units are needed, upwards of 30 subsea wells are required and also a range of umblilicals and flowlines. The Gendalo hub will be designed to process 700 million cubic feet per day of gas and 25,000 barrels per day of liquids. Gehem's hub will need a smaller gas handling capacity, about 420 million cubic feet per day.

 
Activities
 
Chevron Completes Bangka FEED
Date: Dec. 2011
Type: Operator Update
Bangka The natural gas project completed FEED in December 2011 and began the contracting approval process with the government of Indonesia. The project scope includes a subsea tieback to an FPU. The company’s working interest is 62 percent. At the end of 2011, proved reserves had not been recognized for this project.
Technip Clinches FEED Contract for Chevron's Gendalo Project
Date: Mar. 2011
Type: Facility Construction
Chevron Indonesia has awarded Technip a front-end engineering design contract for two floating production units located offshore Indonesia in the Gendalo and Gehem fields at water depths of 3,500 to 6,000 feet (1,070 to 1,830 meters). The contract includes the hull, topsides, mooring systems and steel catenary risers of the two floating production units; and the work will be executed by Tecnhip’s operating centers in Jakarta, Indonesia and Houston, Texas. The Gendalo gas-condensate project, located in the Kutal Basin, is considered to be one of the deepest projects ever undertaken offshore Indonesia. Chevron operates the project, holding an 80% interest; Eni holds 20%.
Chevron Awards FEED Contracts for Gendalo-Gehem Project
Date: Dec. 2010
Type: Contract Award
Chevron awarded FEED contracts for the Gendalo-Gehem natural gas development in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. The contract for the FPUs was allocated to PT Technip Indonesia; the contracts for the subsea and flowline system and for export pipelines were awarded to PT Worley Parsons Indonesia; and PT. Singgar Mulia received the contract for the onshore receiving facility. The Gendalo-Gehem project will include two separate hub developments, each with its own floating production unit (FPU), subsea drill centers, export gas and condensate pipelines and an onshore receiving facility. Gas from the project will be used both domestically and also converted to LNG at the Bontang LNG facility in Indonesia for export. Daily production from the project is anticipated to be 1.1 Bcf of natural gas and 31,000 barrels of condensate. Currently, Chevron holds an 80% interest in the project and is seeking regulatory approval to farm-down a portion of its holding; Eni SPA holds the remaining interest. The Gendalo gas-condensate project, located in the Kutal Basin, is considered to be one of the deepest projects ever undertaken offshore Indonesia, in water depths ranging from 2,500 to 6,000 feet (610 to 1,829 meters).
