To note, during the first half of 2013, oil production of Pertamina Hulu Energi West Madura Offshore reached 10,220 barrels per day (bpd), or about 50 percent of which has been targeted at 20 443 bph.
But the number of such production under the same target is not met, the low realization of production in the first six months of this because in the early years of oil production is still below 10,000 bpd.
“Pertamina had experienced problems in mounting platform (platform) and the addition of new drilling rigs,” said Eddy.
