Buru Energy regains some access to Ungani Oil Field

The on-site storage tanks are full with an inventory of some 5,000 barrels of oil.

Buru Energy Ltd (ASX:BRU) is able to use the Ungani access road with light vehicles as water levels have generally receded below the roadbed level.

The field crew has been accessing the oilfield and preparations are underway to commence the restart.

This will occur as soon as heavy vehicle access is restored and the current inventory in the storage tanks is able to be lifted.

Heavy vehicle access could be possible as early as the end of this month.

Ramping up to 3,000 barrels of oil per day

Subject to the production results from the Ungani 4 and Ungani 5 wells, the forward plan is to continue to build production to the target rate of 3,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd).

The on-site storage tanks are full with an inventory of some 5,000 barrels of oil due to no access from the road train trucks.

Extra trucks secured to haul the oil upon access

The existing oil cartage contractor Fuel Trans Australia Pty Ltd has committed six road trains in quad configuration for Ungani production on re-start.

This will allow production transport capacity of about 2,400 bopd.

A contract has now also been executed with Road Trains Australia for an additional three road trains in triple configuration to allow for the 3,000 bopd target to be reached.
